Track: 4GWE -- Wireless Backhaul, 4G Capacity and Processing Requirements,
and Alternative Solutions (4G5)
Testing 4G Ahead of the Curve
|Thursday - 09/03/09, 8:30-9:45am|
4G deployments are in various stages, but the real issues are about the applications on the broadband Internet as it supports wireless. Where will the bottlenecks be with the network, in the air, at the core, in the device? What strategies for testing the legacy wireless network no longer apply? How does OFDM and MIMO impact service delivery? Will the lessons of VoIP on wireline apply to the 4G solutions going forward?

Fujitsu: Migrating the Core: Wireless Backhaul
|Thursday - 09/03/09, 10:00-11:15am|
With the adoption of data standards for the wireless network, the existing T1s have to be augmented with new capacity and traffic management strategies. However, the history of the Internet has taught us there is a great deal of flexibility in how this traffic is managed and shaped. This session examines the possibilities of deploying solutions such as Metro-Ethernet and WiMAX and the opportunities for new services based on these solutions.
• What are the real capacity requirements for 4G networks?
• Will we always need to convert to circuit switch speeds (e.g. T-1, DSO) for backhaul?

Services Require Systems: OSS in the IP world
|Thursday - 09/03/09, 11:30-12:00pm|
For the last decade the management of IP services has been a combination of legacy interface systems with web integration. As we head to the 4G network of the future, the opportunity to implement greenfield solutions that match our future needs is not only desirable but probably economical. Looking at the path to 4G how can the systems that support 4G be implemented with an open mind for new services?
