I just stumbled upon this article about MWC at European Telecom Blog. http://mccanntelecom.com/wishes-from-the-mwc
Very interesting to see that industry is now really after Ethernet and Mobile Backhaul with advanced Performance Monitoring and Service Level Management capabilities.
John McCann says: "The MWC was a fantastic opportunity to talk with a number of carriers and vendors who all know that there is an issue but I have yet to see anyone who has a complete end-to-end solution. Some vendors have great radios, some vendors monitor excellently, and some vendors offer a cost efficient way of backhauling. As has happened many times before a very clever network engineer somewhere around the world will come up with a way to solve these problems elegantly without going way over budget and ensuring a consistently good revenue stream.
Are you that engineer?"
At least I think we can say that we have already most of the pieces of the puzzle in place, maybe we should attend MWC next year :)
