Building a broadband public safety backhaul microwave network with utmost resiliency for 2020.
Every packet counts. Therefore high resiliency and service availability are key design considerations when deploying a public safety microwave networks. The traditional architecture of ring-and-spoke topology can provide strong protection against failure in the aggregating ring but leaves the radio sites on the spokes vulnerable to upstream failure. Furthermore, multi-failures in the rings also can also cut off connectivity if there is no path diversity, jeopardizing critical communications. This session discusses how a Nokia backhaul network solution, based on IP/MPLS and packet microwave, with a multi-ring topology, can provide utmost resiliency. From fault detection, OAM to rapid network restoration, we will discuss how IP/MPLS riding atop packet microwave can leverage full path diversity to restore connectivity even in multi-failure scenarios, ensuring highest network availability for first responders to get their jobs done safely.
