Executive Summary

This paper explores the dramatic and continuing increase in data traffic within mobile service provider networks - specifically traffic based on HSPA and associated standards - and presents a solution for cost-effectively providing more bandwidth in the Radio Access Network (RAN) for backhaul of data traffic. The Cisco solution, Mobile Transport over Packet (MToP), is presented. A description of how a mobile service provider can make a smooth migration over time from a legacy infrastructure to 3G IP infrastructures and beyond to 4G or Long Time Evolution (LTE) is also included.
