Synopsis of Bell Labs activities at Inspirefest 2017 in Dublin
Bell Labs activities at MWC Shanghai 2017
As fixed access network service providers face increasing competition in their TV and broadband businesses, they need to find ways to provide wireless services...
The transformation of enterprise fulfillment operations is becoming a necessity for forward-looking CSPs. In this white paper, we share best practices and show how enterprise fulfillment poses a significant opportunity to radically reduce cost and improve the customer experience.
Alcatel-Lucent’s Capability Reference Operating Model (CROM) defines an end-to-end framework for telecoms operations, including a comprehensive map of operational functions and capabilities.
NFV and SDN have the potential to produce €39 billion in savings for European operators.
To ensure a smooth migration from TDM to all-IP networks and maintain high quality, this North American converged operator wanted a plan that would create readiness across its different organizations, and would stay within schedule and budget.
In considering the user experience MSOs will be expected to provide in the future, content will remain important but the other two winners in this future environment are connectivity and cloud. Jointly these will reduce the complexity that exists in today´s networks and devices and unlock unfulfilled commercialization potential.
By moving to a cable edge cloud architecture and using technologies such as SDN and NFV, operators can create a network that is 100 times more powerful — in terms of higher bandwidth and lower latency — than today.
The next phase in our network evolution will result in a total optimization of the user experience, with the ultimate goal being creation of networks with seemingly infinite capacity. This will affect the entire value chain from content producers through network providers to end device manufacturers.
How will NFV/SDN transform service provider opex? By E. Hernandez-Valencia, F. Izzo, B. Polonsky
Bell Labs Consulting inaugural report finds human demand for a digital future anywhere...
Ray LeMaistre of Light Reading interviews Bell Labs President Marcus Weldon on the goals and vision of Bell Labs.
Authored by Ken Budka, Jayant Deshpande, and Marina Thottan, Communication Networks for Small Grids presents an application-centric approach to the development of smart grid communication architecture and network transformation. The coverage includes in-depth reviews of both the traditional utility applications and new and evolving Smart Grid applications. Providing detailed insights derived from the authors’ pivotal work on smart grid communications and extensive consulting (Bell Labs Advisory Services) experience, the book explains how electric power companies can transform their networks to best meet the challenges of tomorrow’s Smart Grids.
We are at the dawn of an era in networking that has the potential to define a new phase of human existence. This era will be shaped by the digitization and con...
Bell Labs Consulting worked closely with a Tier 1 Eastern European Operator to plan the migration of legacy services and transform its business strategy to succeed in the race for convergence leadership in this highly competitive environment.
Challenged by growth in fixed, mobile and M2M traffic, European operators are devising new technology designs and standards, drawing inspiration from highly op...
By capitalizing on the ultra-broadband capabilities of G.fast, service providers can deploy FTTH services without actually having to bring fiber all the way into the building or home.
DOCSIS® for LTE small cell backhaul: Addressing performance and throughput requirements for mobile backhaul
Small cells can be used to increase wireless network capacity, provide coverage in areas where there is no or poor macro cell coverage, or to provide contiguous coverage and capacity in targeted high-value locations. Control signaling performance (delay/jitter/loss) and bandwidth throughput needs for small cells can place very stringent requirements on backhaul networks. The use of cable networks, given the extensive distribution of coaxial across residential and business locations, is one option for small cell backhaul. Therefore, it is important to understand the small cell performance and throughput levels that different cable networks can support given their varying characteristics.
