Mobile Backhaul Evolution Using Microwave Packet Radio
Communications service providers want to support escalating capacity demands from customers with network architectures that support data services as well as traditional voice at sustainable cost. By deploying packet microwave in the access network, service providers can quickly reach more consumer and enterprise customers while delivering multiple services over a single Ethernet connection. With the Alcatel-Lucent 9500 MPR, native packet microwave can be deployed in TDM networks to support a smooth transition to the full-packet network without deploying a hybrid system while TDM and data services coexist. The Alcatel-Lucent 9500 MPR features multiservice aggregation, radio bandwidth optimization, service-aware traffic management, service-driven adaptive modulation, and synchronization distribution - all implemented on one LTE-ready platform that supports TDM-based and hybrid architectures during the evolution cycle.
