The adoption of video in our daily lives has broken gender, age and country barriers. We now live in a world of instant gratification where high-speed connectivity, smart phones, advanced HD and 3D cameras, social media have together ushered in a new era of communication and entertainment. Arguably, no other technology or application in the recent past has permeated our lives as universally as video.

In 2011, it is increasingly common to see communication adding a video dimension to it. Video has become the building block and catalyst for value-add applications. Businesses are using video broadcasts, video conferencing, unified communications and telepresence to increase productivity and reduce cost. Networks are getting overloaded with unicast and video traffic. As the world of communication and entertainment is increasingly going un-tethered and mobile, the imperative need is for the operator to build the right infrastructure from access to transport to the core network. Existing operator infrastructure was not designed for today�s exponentially growing packet data traffic and, in many instances, the lack of next-generation network has become the stumbling block to customer retention and satisfaction.

One of the critical issues facing operators is the cost-effective upgrade of the mobile backhaul network from traditional circuit-based to the next-generation Ethernet and Fiber network capable of handling the traffic load from the highly personalized and unicast traffic patterns of today�s users. Infonetics Research, a leading market research firm, predicts service provider spending on mobile backhaul equipment will exceed $36B for the 2010-2014 years worldwide. As the demands on the network increases, operators will continue to increase their outlay and investment to upgrade and optimize their backhaul network.

With the introduction of Zhone FiberCell, an extension of Zhone�s market-leading FTTx solutions, Zhone is now enabling cost-effective mobile backhaul upgrade solutions for its customers with a carrier-class solution designed to address mobile operators� increased bandwidth needs in today�s data-centric service environment. With the convergence of Internet, wireless and broadband services redefining network requirements, the new Zhone FiberCell solution � in combination with the MXK platform � will offer high-performance bandwidth resources to help operators manage higher traffic loads on their existing network infrastructure.

With enhanced scalability and mobile support capabilities, operators using Zhone FiberCell solutions for mobile backhaul can anticipate a fast evolution to next generation 3G and 4G networks and services. Specifically, the Zhone FiberCell portfolio features alternative backhaul options that give operators the flexibility to choose between copper and fiber, including Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM), Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) and Active Ethernet (AE). By leveraging the operator�s existing and new infrastructures, Zhone FiberCell offers the most cost-effective and highest-performance solution for optimal backhaul capability.
