Telecom and tech companies could, and will, make billions by serving the ‘Next Billion’ customers in the developing world. However, new strategies are needed to reach this attractive market in an economically viable way. To begin with, mobile operators must adopt green cost-saving power solutions for their networks. All indications show that they are in fact doing this right now, with major implications for the industry and the environment.

Network Sharing - MOCN GERAN

With a number of spectrum reframing (e.g. 900 MHz spectrum re-farming) being done to free up band for LTE technology use, operators may have to reduce their GSM capacity and may share their GSM networks. As re-farming significantly reduces the set of frequencies allocated to GSM, 3GPP decided to look in to the RAN sharing method and along with supporting companies found that MOCN (Multiple-Operator Core Network) is optimal RAN Sharing method.

Local Call Local Switch System Architecture

The transmission path is an important part of wireless networks. In wide rural areas or in remote areas, operators sometimes face the challenges to deploy networks due to the lack of or cost of fast and reliable backhaul transport network. Statistical data indicate that many calls in a mobile network in these areas are local calls. There is good probability that call between two terminals go via same BTS or in between co-located BTSs or with in same BSC.
