To this end, Claussen’s group is cooperating with professor Harald Haas from University of Edinburgh on light-to-RF converters – a technology that uses an optical link to provide both data and power to a small cell. The concept builds on earlier work by Haas’s team, using conventional LED lightbulbs to broadcast data. The university has already built a working prototype capable of transmitting information at over a Gigabit per second and supporting multiple HDTV streams.
The Alcatel-Lucent 7950 XRS is the world's most powerful core router platform. Delivering ... the innovative FP3 chipset, the industry's first and only 400G ...developed in-house........................
Basil Alwan, president of Alcatel-Lucent's IP Division, introduces the FP3 network processor.
FP3 is the world's first 400G network processor and the third generation of Alcatel-Lucent’s routing silicon. Based on this breakthrough innovation, Alcatel-Lucent is building the most powerful, scalable and high-performance portfolio of IP edge and core routing platforms in the world.
This is just what service providers need to deliver today’s cloud-based services, high-speed wireless, and video applications.
Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced that Alcatel-Lucent utilized the Broadcom® Premier Custom IC Program to develop and deploy the industry's first 400 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) FP3 Network Processor. By supporting 400Gbps transmission speeds, the new FP3 processor opens new possibilities for bandwidth-intensive services, applications and content, while cutting power consumption by up to 50 percent.

Communications: The power behind smart grids.
Rising environmental awareness, higher energy prices, aging infrastructure and growing energy demand are some of the main drivers of the development of smart grids. It’s a growing market that operators can tap into to raise substantial new revenues.
Phones, laptops, printers, cameras, exercise monitors and vehicles are some of the many types of smart, connected devices that are bringing new levels of convenience and security to people’s lives. Meanwhile, connected machines are helping to reduce operational costs for businesses, adding value to their products and services and helping to meet ambitious CO2 reduction targets.
Machine-to-machine (M2M), or smart object, communications is a fastdeveloping market and one that operators are well placed to profit from. As the providers of connectivity, operators can also offer well-developed provisioning, authentication, charging and billing solutions, all of which underpin successful M2M operations.
............Shares of Alcatel jumped 13% in early-morning trading today after AT&T (NYSE: T ) said that as part of its plan to spend $14 billion over the next three years as it builds up and out its high-speed networks, it will rely in large part on small-cell technology.
While AT&T plans to also deploy 10,000 new macro sites as well as 1,000 distributed antennae systems, it's the small-cell deployments, more than 40,000 strong, that comprise the vast bulk of how Ma Bell plans to strengthen its network.
RTE, responsible for France’s high-voltage transmission grid, needed to build a telecom
network to enhance the protection, control and supervision of its high-voltage transmission
network. Alcatel-Lucent delivered a turnkey, multi-service, high-speed infrastructure,

HetNet News: Small cells take center stage this week
Backhaul was a major motivation for Alcatel-Lucent’s small cell partnership with Towerstream, announced late last month. The agreement gives Alcatel-Lucent access to the rooftop tower company’s high-capacity backhaul, power and mounting rights, which are part of Towerstream’s HetNets Tower Corporation subsidiary.
Driven by in-building wireless coverage requirements and the growing influx of mobile broadband data traffic, a traditional macrocell based cellular network deployment is not deemed to be a sufficient solution to address the coverage and capacity needs of today’s wireless subscribers.
18 July 2014
Driven by the thriving ecosystem, we expect small cells and carrier WiFi deployments to account for nearly $352 Billion in mobile data service revenues by the end of 2020, while overall spending on *HetNet* market is expected to reach $42 Billion annually during the same period.
