In this month’s roundup of industry news, issues and updates, we feature articles about the challenges communications service providers (CSPs) are facing with regard to the transition to LTE and growing adoption of Carrier Ethernet.
RCR Wireless News – Tellabs: LTE Brings Mobile Backhaul Challenges – October 5th
- CSPs are transitioning to LTE to meet the growth in mobile data traffic, but the evolution from 2G or 3G to LTE is a complicated one. Additionally, once LTE infrastructure has been deployed, CSPs are likely to see an increase in their network complexity and operating expenses – but not their revenues. How do you think CSPs grapple with these challenges and ensure a strong ROI?
Developing Telecoms – Carrier Ethernet Catches on in Emerging Markets – October 11th
- More and more CSPs are leveraging Ethernet for their next-generation backhaul architectures as it offers a convenient way for CSPs to meet bandwidth and data demands. As a result of this commoditization, it’s important for CSPs to differentiate their backhaul services to customers demanding fast turn-up and high quality services that meet SLAs.
Telecom Review – Carrier Ethernet 2.0 – Changing the World, Again – October 18th
- Carrier Ethernet was launched approximately 40 years ago as a solution to telco industry pressures like increasing data and is still a popular technology today. Since then, the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) has further developed a new generation of Ethernet, which has the ability to deliver differentiated applications over interconnected, globally-managed networks and improves quality of service (QoS) and network optimization.
What are your thoughts on these industry updates? What do you think is the best way for CSPs to successfully transition to LTE? Do you think in 10 years Carrier Ethernet will still be a growing trend for CSPs? We’re looking forward to your feedback!
