Another day, another raft of emails from online service providers prompting me to update my passwords. My inbox currently resembles a triage unit trying to clamp the impact of Heartbleed. Both professionally and personally, I’m receiving email after email on the topic. In many respects, it’s a timely wake-up call to the many millions of people still using the same childhood password for all their online services. It’s also a prescient reminder about the vulnerability of our data and the networks we depend so heavily upon …
When you attend telecom conferences as part of your day job as I do, you are frequently subject to the biggest trending spook acronym in the industry: OTT. OTT stands for Over the Top, a rather awkward (in my opinion) denomination for market players who use the Internet (which stands ‘above’ the physical network of telecom operators, at least in the OSI stack) to offer services directly to the telecom operators’ customers …

Deployment of the ADVA FSP 3000 supports Neo Telecoms long-term strategy to expand its network of regional data centers across France …
1. There’s been a lot of buzz lately about AnyCell™ Connectivity. Why?
I’d attribute this buzz to the fact that there are so many base stations and cells – with the number increasing almost by the day. Along with that there are many different types of cells with different connectivity requirements. And with all of this complexity, the industry really needs a solution to interconnect them. This is critical.
2. How does this solution differ from what our competitors offer?
We offer an integrated solution for fronthaul and backhaul, which is ideal for interconnecting macro cells, small cells and remote radio heads within the radio access network.
3. Does AnyCell™ Connectivity do something for us now that we couldn’t do before?
AnyCell™ Connectivity is basically a flexible solution for all types of cells. It interconnects them with base band pools and ultimately the mobile core. Before this point, either we had a dedicated fronthaul or backhaul solution, but nothing that was integrated.
4. Have we deployed AnyCell™ Connectivity yet?
The solution is currently deployed with multiple customers across Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, along with many other projects in the pipeline.
5. Is AnyCell™ Connectivity only interesting for the mobile network operator or also for the fixed network operator?
It’s interesting for both, depending on whether the connectivity is self-provided or leased as a service.
6. We recently acquired a new company. How does Oscilloquartz’s portfolio enhance this solution?
This acquisition means that we have added the central office component for synchronization distribution, which is something that we didn’t have before.
AnyCell Connectivity - A New Vision for Mobile Networks
AnyCell Connectivity is a new concept for mobile data networks. A new concept for a mobile data generation. It’s a blueprint for the mobile industry, enabling mobile network operators to answer the enormous challenges ahead and successfully migrate to LTE-Advanced.
It’s been an interesting start to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia – between the #sochiproblems twitter feed reporting everything bad that’s happening, to the too fast downhill which is claiming its share of Olympic athletes and the snowboarders half-pipe that’s melting.
Despite these issues, one thing is clear – technology is making its way into every part of the Olympics. From communications, collaboration and data networking, to security, to information services, to event timing and to analyzing the performance of each athlete – a lot has changed since the last Winter Olympics in 2010 …
