Title: The Backhaul Battle


1
The Backhaul Battle
  • Who will win?

Presented to NetEvents 2007 European Press Summit
Date Thursday February 22, 2007
2
Company Background
  • Founded in 1997
  • Leading Provider of Competitive ResponseTM
    Solutions
  • 80 Researchers Analysts Worldwide
  • 40,000 Subscribers
  • 250 Enterprise Customers
  • Headquarters in Washington D.C. Offices in San
    Diego, CA Dallas, TX London and Paris

3
Killer Applications How does all-IP Mobile
Change the Rules of the Game?
  • Amazingly enough the killer application is
    going to remain VOICE we are naturally
    talkative!
  • Rich-media communications over converged devices
  • 4G field-trials by NTT DoCoMo
  • 3D virtual reality and interactive video/hologram
    images
  • Increased interactions with compatible
    technologies (e.g., smartcard prepaid electronic
    cash apps or putting house heating on before you
    come home)

4
NTT DoCoMo 4G
  • Advanced video handset suited to 4G network
  • Wrist-phone mobile handset

5
Pure-IP Mobile
  • HSDPA will drive mobile VoIP over cellular
  • UMA extends to WiFi hotspots

6
Bandwidth Demand and Costs Is there a Scalable
Business Model?
  • 3G evolving to HSPA, followed by UTRAN LTE
  • Total traffic volume increasing 100 annually
  • ARPU not growing in sync. with backhaul costs!
  • Operator tendencies
  • Mobile operators rely less on traditional Leased
    Lines
  • OpEx must reduce
  • Self-build interesting to convert OpEx to CapEx
  • Achieve ROI on legacy SDH and ATM
  • TDM move to Ethernet for HSPA support
  • Backhaul statistics
  • Backhaul 16 of CapEx
  • Backhaul 20 of OpEx
  • Leased lines - anything from 6-25 of OpEx

7
Infrastructure
  • What's the best in-home technology?
  • WiFi
  • Femtocells
  • Bluetooth
  • How long for IMS interoperability?
  • Not here yet
  • Standards in evolution (new components being
    added)
  • How long until mobile networks can support
    bandwidth for all-IP?
  • Voice requires good, consistent bandwidth
  • HSPA investments just taking place (operators
    want to pay off investments)
  • WiMAX still unproven
  • LTE still years away

8
Infrastructure Sales Marketing of All-IP Mobile
  • Services
  • What are the applications? (WiMAX operators say
    that they don't even know!)
  • How will operators charge for them?
  • How will operators educate market from zero
    momentum?
  • Devices
  • Will operators need to significantly subsidize
    devices?
  • Will an operator subsidize devices that can then
    be used off its own network?
  • How long until device costs drop for mass-market?
  • How long for entire ecosystem to develop
    including PC, TV, devices, home hub,
    refrigerators, etc.?

9
Transport
  • There is an "elephant in the room Internet
    Explorer, we all know it's a problem!
  • How long will it take to deploy fiber to meet the
    new bandwidth demand with a realistic cost and
    ROI?

10
Backhaul Issues
  • Economics
  • More NodeBs, more links, more sites, more
    planning
  • P2p links mean lots of aerial infrastructure
  • Performance
  • Even new-build 2G access not enough for HSPA
  • Spectrum is limited
  • Interference is increased (smaller cells -gt
    higher density)
  • All-IP remains unproven
  • TDM/ATM legacy support, carrier grade, flexible
    bandwidth management
  • QoS control
  • IP knowledge

11
Panel Discussion
  • What should be the objective for deployment of
    microwave transmission systems?
  • In access-backhaul networks?
  • In backbone-core networks?
  • How would you describe the current market
    condition of microwave transmission?
  • e.g., commodity, competitive, innovating, mature,
    declining, evolving to NGN
  • What are your companys overall priorities for
    the transmission network?
  • higher capacity, lower costs (opex/capex),
    network renewal, replacement with fixed
    technology
  • How are the priorities different in access and
    backbone?
  • How important is Ethernet?
  • How important is scalable bandwidth?
  • How important is a wide range of spectrum options?
