Mobile backhaul is evolving at an increasingly rapid rate. Small cells are proliferating. Technologies are shifting. Traffic is growing. Competition is intensifying.
Meeting these changing requirements requires a network that deploys quickly, is always-on, and provides unprecedented visibility for the network operator and wireless service provider.
With hundreds or even thousands of smartphones depending on the connection to their base station, mobile operators hold their backhaul providers to the highest levels of performance in the industry. Mobile operators want real-time visibility of circuit performance. They want bandwidth on demand. They want a circuit that never ever fails.
This service provider is planning to use the E5-308 and E5-520 – along with their legacy equipment – to collect Y.1731 reports, and then use Service Verify’s predictive analytics to alert them when they approach SLA thresholds.
Finger Lakes Technologies Group: Third-party interoperability with Y.1731 This service provider is planning to use the E5-308 and E5-520 – along with their legacy equipment – to collect Y.1731 reports, and then use Service Verify’s predictive analytics to alert them when they approach SLA thresholds.
Living up to these high expectations requires an integrated, solutions-based approach. First, backhaul providers need a cloud based predictive monitoring and service assurance system with integrated customer facing portals. Second, they need an intelligent transport and aggregation network that provisions itself and doesn’t stop for software upgrades. Third, they need a resilient access solution with redundancy and comprehensive synchronization options. Assembling such an integrated solution can be a tall order for backhaul service providers – unless they turn to the Calix mobile backhaul solution.
