Alcatel-Lucent Next-Generation Business IP VPN Solution
LightRadio: Portfolio: White Paper 2: Economic Analysis
As data usage escalates, mobile service providers need a new approach to delivering a high quality of experience, while keeping costs down.
Alcatel-Lucent enables this business and infrastructure transformation, with its pioneering lightRadio™ architecture, which distributes intelligence between the radio head, on-site processors and centralised processing over high-bandwidth and low-latency optical networks. The architecture also provides optimal configurations for each service provider's requirements, including backhaul needs, to reduce the network's total cost of ownership (TCO) significantly.
These innovations can allow service providers to benefit from increased wireless demand, while deploying highly optimised networks, reinforced by powerful radio, transmission and antenna advances.
This paper is one in a series authored by Alcatel-Lucent that discuss the current state of wireless networks and the benefits of transitioning to a lightRadio architecture that supports data and video traffic, now and well into the future.
