LightRadio: Portfolio: White Paper 1: Technical Overview
Wireless operators are facing exponential growth in adoption rates, as well as device capabilities.
As this trend continues, existing networks and architectures will not be able to deliver the required performance — or maintain costs at an economically sustainable level. To address these challenges, lightRadio™ offers a new wireless networking paradigm, which can add sufficient capacity, in the right location, with the right technology, to optimise the end-user experience along with operator economics.
This paper provides an overview of the lightRadio paradigm developed by Alcatel-Lucent and Bells Labs, including technology components, transport options - and the total cost of ownership savings that can be realised.
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.
