Lucent Unveils New Base Station Router To Simplify And Reduce Cost Of 3G Data Networks
Lucent Technologies unveiled the Lucent Base Station Router (BSR), a Bell Labs innovation that integrates key components of third-generation (3G) mobile networks into a single network element, thus "flattening" what is typically a more complex architecture.
By combining a base station, radio network controller and core network router functionalities into one system, the Lucent BSR can simplify and reduce the cost of operating IP-based mobile networks, cut the cost of upgrading 3G networks — including HSDPA (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) and CDMA2000 (Code Division Multiple Access) — to support high speed data services, and improve the quality of service as perceived by subscribers.
Because it uses standard signaling interfaces defined by the 3G Partnership Project (3GPP) and 3GPP2 (standards-setting bodies responsible for defining the characteristics of 3G networks), the Lucent BSR can be easily integrated into any IP network deployed and managed by a 3G mobile operator.
