The wireless network is quickly evolving. To address the latency between mobile devices and the mobile network operator's (MNO) mobile packet core (MPC), mobile networks are beginning to deploy evolved packet core (EPC) equipment. But this technology, which supports new access standards such as LTE that deliver greater data capacity to customers with lower latency, is only part of the solution. To truly achieve the lowest latency and greatest capacity, the future EPC architecture must reflect today's wireline architecture as a reference.
Platform Equinix™ provides the ideal solution for regionally distributing high volumes of traffic closer to users and applications in order to ease congestion over backhaul lines. This enables you to engineer a backbone that complements emerging low-latency access technologies while reducing operational costs.
To enable the mobile ecosystem to deliver high-performance, high-value, and clearly differentiated end-to-end mobile broadband solutions, the industry needs a more efficient, more scalable reference architecture that makes it easier, faster and less expensive for MNOs to scale their capacity to meet demand. This whitepaper details the elements of such an architecture.
Platform Equinix™ offers high-performance reach to the greatest number of end-users, the widest array of lit buildings and the most vibrant ecosystem of customers within our data centers.
Location matters. Platform Equinix interconnects a critical mass of industry participants in one place, allowing businesses to enhance performance and increase user satisfaction while reducing operational costs.
