Alcatel-Lucent Converged Radio Access Network solution 2 Your mobile subscribers are adopting 3G services but the tra- ditional 2G subscriber base keeps growing too. You face the need to expand both network layers for more capacity and coverage to improve both the quality of service and availability. And with the onset of LTE, you must further develop your networks and ratio- nalize your investments to deliver profitable services. You need to grow your capacity today and re-allocate resources based on subscribers’ demand tomorrow. The Alcatel-Lucent Converged Radio Access Network (RAN) solution de- livers Software Defined Radio (SDR), IP transport and the building blocks you need for flexible deployment and simple management of both your existing and new networks.

Alcatel-Lucent Converged Radio Access Network solution 3 In the ever evolving wireless mobile communication world, subscriber fidelity is driven by handsets, services and prices. As an operator, your focus is on providing the best services at the lowest price and at the lowest Total Cost of Ownership to maintain or increase your profits. Technology evolution has led to the deployment of at least two layers of services (GSM and W-CDMA/HSPA, CDMA/EV-DO), which needs to keep growing. Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the next mobile broadband carrier and will allow over 100 Mb/s download transfers. Operators must balance next year’s development strategy, subscriber behavior, terminal availability, the competition’s next move and investment costs. To remain competitive and sustain your network growth at reasonable investment costs, you need to limit expenditures for new equipment, network management, site acquisition, site rental, installation, backhauling and power supply. Evolving technologies lead to more compact and power-efficient products, capable of handling more traffic, which can be leveraged to rationalize the radio access and transport layers. Converged RAN includes them all: SDR, mobility features, converged transport and a unified management center. Converged RAN is the key to a smooth and cost-efficient network evolution. How will your mobile networks evolve? How should you allocate your investments?

Alcatel-Lucent Converged Radio Access Network solution 4 Converged RAN: hardware versatility and software flexibility for complementary layers Versatility by leveraging the installed base A multistandard approach allows part of a system or equipment within a network to host several standards, such as GSM and W-CDMA, with a unique management and control interface. This is currently achieved by the Alcatel-Lucent 9100 Multistandard Base Station (MBS), which integrates GSM, UMTS and LTE modules within a single rack and managed by the Alcatel-Lucent 9953 OMC-Portal.
