At Vodafone Innovation Days, held last November, 8th to 10th, I was really surprised by the number of new applications and partners that Vodafone, one of the leaders in the Service Providers area, has presented. The new applications were ranging from transponder locks, to car automatic consumption control and remote monitoring, to Mobile Virtual Desktops.
From a service architecture perspective, the main focus of this event was on Mobile Cloud, M2M, messaging and Mobile Secure VPNs, while the main “course” was, of course (and no pun intended), LTE Architecture, LTE coverage, and new services.
As Cisco we demonstrated our RCS and CS Fall Back function. These two solutions are key for Mobile Operators in their ability to deliver a seamless 3G/LTE voice and messaging service. Further, particular attention was dedicated to the Video Optimization architecture, that takes advantage of the ASR 5000 capability set.
LTE rollout plans are very aggressive in Germany, where the service started back last year and was aimed initially at covering the rural areas with data services, being completed by 3G services. In 2012, the coverage will increase dramatically and the plans are to complete it in most of the country.
But coverage is not the only primary objective: high quality and performance are the other key objectives for local mobile operators and as a result, delivery of the quality experience to the end user.
Last but not least, a new set of terminals represent the presentation layer for the new services LTE can offer.
We have MPLS backbone, the backbone is connected to two internet service providers (ISP1 and ISP2), PE1 receives the default route from ISP1 and PE2 receives the default route from ISP2. Both PEs then advertise the default route to other VRFs (Customers)....
