Use of MPLS in LTE

Broadband Forum

MPLS is a mature technology that unifies various types of backhaul traffic and offers several migration choices to service providers, enabling them to follow the course that best suits their needs and operating environment.

The Broadband Forum, through its MPLS in Mobile Backhaul Initiative (MMBI), aims to define reference architectures and technical specifications for mobile backhaul deployments in collaboration with vendors and service providers.

The initiative motivates vendors to offer products and services on a commonly agreed framework and enables service providers to offer new services with reduced risk and improved time to market. This white paper targets vendors and service providers that are in various stages of planning for mobile backhaul for LTE.
