  • Key Deployment Strategies for Voice and Video over LTE Recorded: Nov 17 2011 59 mins
    Dale Boehm, Product Manager, V2oLTE, Cisco; Jon Morgan, Director of Product Marketing, Cisco
    Mobile operators are moving to all-IP LTE architectures in order to cost-effectively meet consumer demand for advanced voice, video, and messaging services. This migration is complex and challenging and operators need an architecture that is both flexible and capable in order to evolve at an acceptable pace while preserving service quality and reliability.

    Learn how to enable mobile operators to efficiently migrate to an intelligent next-generation mobile network for the optimized delivery of advanced voice, video, and SMS services.
  • Architecting Mobile Backhaul for the Next Generation Internet Recorded: Oct 27 2011 64 mins
    Robert Synnestvedt, Mobility Marketing Manager, Cisco
    Learn about techniques that are proving to improve profitability of Mobile Backhaul networks by:

    + Reducing OPEX by as much as 70% via backhaul network efficiency gains
    + Scaling networks on-demand to meet 100 times the traffic
    + Simplifying network operations by unifying the network to backhaul any multi-vendor radio over any media
    + Reducing the complexity and cost of operating, deploying, and scaling backhaul of multivendor, multigenerational Radio Access Networks (RANs)
    + Optimizing architecture with specific network designs to meet unique customer needs in this session

    Mobile Backhaul networks continue to strain under the load of exponential Mobile Internet traffic growth. To alleviate the resulting financial pressure of accompanying increases in operating expenses, as well as to scale the networks to meet the ever increasing mobile broadband demand, operators must optimize and cost effectively overhaul these networks. Upgrading the Radio Access Network (RAN) is arguably the most critical investment mobile operators are making in 2010-2012 as they migrate from 2G to 3G+ to improve OPEX, increase teledensity, and unlock additional "Mobile Internet" revenue opportunities.

  • Everything You Wanted to Know About Policy in Mobile Networks Recorded: Jun 9 2011 54 mins
    Cisco: Lou Menditto, Product Mgr; Jim O' Leary, Solution Mgr
    By 2015, there will be over 5 billion wireless consumer devices and 400 million mobile-only Internet users with global mobile data traffic growing to over 3.6 exabytes per month. Service providers are under pressure to reduce data delivery costs and simplify network operations, while increasing revenue opportunities. Network evolutions, advanced mobile devices, and unlimited data plans are increasing the costs of managing this tidal wave of mobile data traffic. Cisco expects the signaling and control plane impact to be even larger than the bearer plane therefore significantly affecting policy – which becomes instrumental in making money and therefore becomes mission critical.
