The mobile packet core is the functionality that ties together a mobile Radio Access Network (RAN) and the IP routers in the network backbone.? Its importance is exemplified by two recent acquisitions in recent months. Cisco Systems bought 3G and LTE gateway specialist Starent Networks, while Tellabs has entered the wireless core market with the acquisition of WiMax access service network (ASN) gateway vendor WiChorus.
In the last year or so, there has been a major transformation in how mobility is perceived by consumers and delivered by wireless networks.? As mobile applications and consumer expectations grow, this puts a rather taxing requirement on the network â?? scaling, throughput, and keeping costs lower.? Jay Iyer, Distinguished Engineer, Cisco Systems will talk about how all IP network intelligence plays a key role in the mobile Internet transformation.
Rehan Jalil, Senior Vice President, Mobile Internet Division, Tellabs, will discuss the need for a smart packet core architecture in todayâ??s emerging mobile networks so operators can reduce operation expenditures, maximize use of existing network assets and create new ways to monetize the content flowing through the mobile network.? A smart 4G core makes all of these goals realities by being able to accommodate the dramatic increase in mobile Internet traffic, analyze the traffic loads and dynamically adapt traffic management policies, and differentiate QoS and enable accounting based on content.? As a result of this approach, mobile operators can create an avenue for additional end-user Internet usage capacity, and ultimately the opportunity to increase ARPU.? Jalil will elaborate about how this intelligent core services engine approach is alleviating? the additional network demands of network operators today, and share an innovative new solution that can reduce costs and increase revenues such that operators can profit from the mobile data explosion rather than be overwhelmed by it.
A lively panel session will follow these presentations.? The speakers and moderator will address the role of the mobile packet core as wireless networks evolve from 3G to 4G.? They will also provide their prospective on the outlook for mobile broadband and fixed BWA in India.
