Nokia Sees 5G Delivering 1 Gbps Home Broadband by 2017

Nokia Networks believes home broadband will be successful use case for 5G in areas with millions of homes near to fiber but without last hop connectivity via fiber to the home.

Nokia's solution bridges from the existing fiber network using high throughput 5G-ready hotspots placed, for example, on adjacent lamp posts to cover the last hop. Nokia Networks will start trialling a solution in 2016 that ensures at least 1 Gbps throughput for every home. The company is targeting commercial availability in 2017.

In April, 2015, at the Brooklyn Summit, Nokia Networks together with National Instruments demonstrated 10 Gbps speeds over the air with massive MIMO and beamsteering technologies, paving the way for meeting 5G requirements. It is a concrete proof point of our capability to deliver on the promise of a true 1 Gbps last hop connection to the home in the timeline outlined here today.

Nokia Launches 1 Gbps Small Cell

Nokia Networks unveiled a new Flexi Zone outdoor modular base station that becomes the world’s first small cell to achieve over 1 Gbps peak data rate. 

The new Flexi Zone G2 Multi-Band Carrier Aggregation Outdoor Micro/Pico Base Station (BTS) offers three RF module slots, enabling operators to deploy and aggregate between various radio access technologies and spectrum combinations including up to three LTE licensed carrier bands or configurations offering a combination of LTE licensed carrier bands, unlicensed LTE bands (LTE-U or LAA) and Wi-Fi.

Nokia also announced a number of innovations to simplify small cell deployment and help operators to evolve to Ultra-Dense Networks. These include the optimal selection of viable sites, more efficient backhaul, improved plug and play technology, new energy-saving features and simplified synchronization between base stations. The company said its HetNet Engine Room allows operators to deploy small cells 30% faster, with 20% lower costs and serve 10% more subscribers. Using detailed 3-D street level maps, the service calculates a ‘Site Value Index’ that quantifies the likely return on investment (ROI) for operators from different locations.

Several other Nokia Networks innovations also focus on overcoming the technical and cost barriers of deploying small cells:
  • A point-to-multipoint non-line-of-sight (NLoS) wireless backhaul option from Nokia Networks partner Tarana Wireless. Fast high-performance fiber-like backhaul can now be deployed to sites that are difficult to reach cost-effectively with fiber or line-of-sight  technologies.
  • New Intelligent Self Organizing Networks (iSON) capabilities enable rapid small cell deployments with backhaul over public networks* and for operator networks that do not use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol  (DHCP). In these two more complex environments, small cells can now be operational in under 20 minutes after being powered up.
  • An integrated Grand Master Clock function added to the Flexi Zone Controller that distributes a high accuracy clock to all Flexi Zone AP** within the cluster. This functionality offers significant CapEx and OpEx savings by eliminating the need for an external timing solution or GPS antenna  for each small cell.
“Deploying a small cell on one side of a road can cost ten times more than at a location just a few meters away on the other side of the road. We are bringing a new approach that enables operators to pick the best sites and then deploy small cells and their backhaul quickly and at a much lower cost. Now operators can justify the business case for small cells and improve the return on their network investments,” stated Randy Cox, head of Small Cell Product Management at Nokia Networks.

Google Cloud Builds Global Content Delivery Network Partnerships

Google announced collaborations with four of the industry’s leading content delivery network (CDN) providers: CloudFlare, Fastly, Highwinds, and Level 3 Communications.

The new CDN Interconnect program enables the customers of these CDN providers and the Google Cloud Platform to pay reduced prices for in-region Cloud Platform egress traffic (to approved CDN locations).

Google said this CDN Interconnect program will encourage the best practice of regularly distributing content originating from Cloud Platform out to the edge close to end-users. Google provides a private, high-performance link between Cloud Platform and the CDN providers, allowing content to travel a low-latency, reliable route from the Google data centers out to the end users. Google is recommending that publishers on the Google Cloud Platform to also use a CDN provider especially for heavy, frequently accessed content.

Google's network footprint currently extends to 70 PoPs in 33 countries.

Level 3 Content Delivery Network is in 90+ major metro cities globally.

CloudFlare posted the following explanation: 30 CloudFlare points of presence (PoPs) are directly connected to Google Cloud Platform’s infrastructure. When one of these CloudFlare PoPs requests content from a Google Cloud Platform origin, it’s routed through a high-performance interconnect instead of the public Internet. This dramatically reduces latency for origin requests, and it also enables discounted Google Cloud Platform egress pricing in the US, Europe and Asia regions.

As of May 1st, Fastly has nine points of presence (POPs) interconnected with Google: San Jose, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, New York, Ashburn, Frankfurt, London, and Tokyo.

Console Unveils its Cloud Direct Connect Platform

Console, a start-up based in Santa Clara, California, introduced its platform for directly connecting enterprise networks to other networks or cloud services while bypassing the public Internet.

The Console software and interconnection platform provides a one-click, Layer 2 & 3 provisioning process to networks in its directory using Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs).  Enterprise customers would not need to know the ASN because Console's provisioning process takes care of that as well as the BGP routing between domains. Users simply click on the service or network they wish to connect to, Console auto-provisions the ASN and sets up the connection.

The company announced a number of strategic partners and customers, including Microsoft Azure, Zayo Group, SummitIG, Hurricane Electric, velocloud, and numerous data center operators. The company says its approach results in improved security, faster speeds, and lower latency compared with connecting over the public Internet.

“Historically, security, performance and complexity concerns have always been barriers to enterprise cloud deployment. By enabling direct interconnection with Azure, the Console platform expels this notion, allowing our users to securely and directly connect to Azure with a click of a button,” says Al Burgio, CEO of Console Inc. “Our revolutionary Console platform, combined with Microsoft’s powerful cloud offerings, enable enterprises to realize the tangible business benefits of the cloud faster and easier than ever before.”

“Our collaboration with Console will expand the number of enterprises able to directly access Microsoft Azure through Azure ExpressRoute,” says Ross Ortega, Principal Product Manager, Networking, Microsoft Azure. “With Console’s direct connections customers can quickly provision and access Microsoft cloud services with better predictability, privacy, and performance.”

“Hurricane Electric is excited to join both the Console platform and Data Center Partner Program. The Console platform provides customers the opportunity to simplify the way they directly connect to SaaS and cloud providers, including our leading global IPv6 backbone,” states Mike Leber, President of Hurricane Electric.
