Last mile in context

Use of the radiowave propagation in order to connect the subscriber at the « last mile » of the network : wireless starts when the copper ends !

» of the network : wireless starts when the copper ends ! • Cheaper than cable,
» of the network : wireless starts when the copper ends ! • Cheaper than cable,

• Cheaper than cable,

• Easy to deploy and undeploy

• High bit rates (several Mbit/s per subscriber/CPE),

• Frequencies used : 2.4 to 40

GigaHz, and lower (from LOS to nLOS solution)

• Associated services : VoIP,

broadband internet, multimedia…

Last mile in context Many technologies for the same goal: • Microwave links • WLL

Last mile in context

Many technologies for the same goal:

• Microwave links

• WLL (LMDS)

• W-MAN (WiFi, WiMAX, WiBRO, Flash-OFDM © )

• Mobile (3G)

• Broadcast (DVB-H, T-DAB, Wi-TV)

• Mesh networking

Different technical and commercial maturity

Mesh networking Different technical and commercial maturity • UMTS already launched commercially, Bit rate lower

• UMTS already launched commercially, Bit rate lower than initial expectations

• LMDS faced a major crisis in Europe and Northern America in the years 2000

• FWA-type of WiMAX has just been certified

• Studies and tests for DVB-H

• MW links requires expensive deployment costs

• WiFi is very sensible to interference and distance limited

Last mile in context

Many questions, few certainty

• Everybody agrees on the fact that content convergence is the key for future applications

• Ideally, the use of one or another technology should be transparent for the customer

Different actors’ profile, different expectations

• Established operators:

- complement to « white areas » where DSL is not already available (rural areas)

- wireless alternative to DSL to face the increasing Bit Rate demand for Residential and SoHo areas

• Alternative operators:

- offering a wireless solution to the « standard » access to the subscriber (optical fiber, cable, dedicated line, non-modifiable installation…)
