Ding Yun, President of Huawei Network Product Line: The IP-based mobile bearer network forms a network support system and a burgeoning trend in the industry. Moreover, it represents a key developmental direction.

Voices from Operators

Sureyya Ciliv, Turkcell's CEO, described how the world is transforming into a connected world, and explained how Turkcell plans to retain its successful market position.

Mr. Pierre-Alain Allemand, Senior Executive Vice President of SFR elaborated on how the new SFR is transforming networks to achieve convergence, synergy and reach their lofty goals.

Cover Story

Having established the world's largest PTN to Node B access, China Mobile Zhejiang has laid a solid foundation for 3G network, full service operations, and the smooth evolution to LTE bearer networking.

Main Topic

As base station backhaul transforms to IP, transmission is switched from circuits to packets in order to efficiently carry multiple mobile broadband services and reduce operators' OPEX ready for the IP era.

Amid the FMC tide, questions arise about whether and how the FMC IP Backhaul can truly help operators realize their convergence goals.

What are the values of a mobile bearer network? How can we create an optimal mobile bearer network to realize the values?

IP transformation of services and packet transport will become the mainstream trends in future network evolution.

How to Operate

IP-based mobile bearer network management is increasingly shifting its focus from equipment to services, and from distributed to centralized operations.

Emerging markets have become an intense battleground for multinational mobile operators with their strategy to enlarge their global footprint, yet challenges remained to build the backhaul networks.


How can OAM skills be enhanced for operators on mobile bearer networks in order to keep pace with IP transformation? Boris You, President of the Huawei Network OSS and Service Product Line, shares his insights.


To support a smoother evolution towards IP networking, there are at least three available options for mobile backhaul. So, which one of these options best suits operators current needs and requirements?

Mobile broadband is a key part of operator strategy and its development necessitates IP-based mobile base station transmission. The IPTime solution helps operators open a new era of LTE-oriented mobile broadband.

Leading Edge

As increasing numbers of leading operators unveil their LTE plans, bearer networks must deliver a carrier-class performance that caters to all scenarios and is underpinned by simplified and cost-effective O&M.

The solution has innovatively integrated the TDM, hybrid, and packet microwave systems into a single system that smoothly transits conventional microwave to packet microwave.
