Mobile broadband traffic volumes over WCDMA/HSPA and LTE is continuously increasing due to users growing demand for high-speed Internet access regardless location. The LTE roll-out will provide additional capacity and end-user capabilities for mobile broadband.

Key to all-IP network evolution

The Ericsson IP RAN business solution ensures carrier-grade IP connectivity all the way to the radio base station, delivering the lowest costs, and the best quality and efficiency for existing or new networks.

The Ericsson IP RAN business solution ensures carrier-grade IP connectivity all the way to the radio base station, delivering the lowest costs, and the best quality and efficiency for existing or new networks. IP RAN is an infrastructure business solution for IP-based RAN deployments. It is designed to support implementation of GSM, WCDMA, and LTE IP RANs. The business solution includes complete connectivity reference solutions for both intra- and inter-site transport, taking into account the issues of performance, reliability, scalability, security and manageability. The IP RAN business solution comprises of a full set of related transport services.

IP RAN is verified in Ericsson's lab facilities with GSM, WCDMA, and LTE Radio Network systems, and documented according to Ericsson best practices.

The IP RAN solution complements the Mobile-PBN solution for the packet core network by offering support for IP connectivity all the way out to RBS sites. IP RAN is designed for usage of either Layer 2 (Ethernet) or Layer 3 (IP) transport services. The IP RAN solution is also verified with the Ericsson Mobile Backhaul solution completing a true Ericsson end-to-end solution for mobile networks.
