BASE STATION APPLICATION OPTIMIZER

Ronit Nossenson

Abstract

Expectation and requirements for future wireless communication systems continue to grow and evolve. Long-Term Evolution (LTE) is a recent effort taken by cellular providers and equipment vendors to step into wireless broadband market. The key enhancements target an introduction of new all-IP architecture, enhanced link layer and radio access. In LTE, one of the recurring problems is the bottlenecked backhaul links, connecting the cell sites with the core network. The basic idea behind the Base Station Application Optimizer is to replace the traditional base station with a smart entity, capable of analyzing and optimizing the user data in the application level. In particular, such unit can prevent unnecessary data from travelling though the bottlenecked backhaul network. The benefits of such entity are reduced latency, jitter and network deployment costs.
