KT, a representative service provider in South Korea, Intel and
Samsung, jointly announced will demonstrate the world?s first
live-air LTE solutions based on Cloud Communication Center (CCC)
network technology at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2011 in Barcelona, Spain.
They also plan an LTE trial test in the third quarter of this year in
At MWC, KT, Intel, and Samsung will demonstrate a Full-HD 3D video
streaming using LTE solutions based on CCC prototype systems. For
this demonstration, Samsung will utilize its commercial-ready LTE
end-to-end solution and commercial servers powered by Intel
architecture, a general purpose processor platform.
LTE CCC is a network technology converging cloud computing and
telecommunications. It is claimed to enable enhancement of data
traffic capacity and network flexibility while reducing an operator?s
total costs for network deployment and operation.
With CCC architecture, Radio Unit (RU), which is placed in its own
local site, only performs radio transmissions and Digital Unit (DU)
connected to RU via a wired network such as optical fiber carries out
all communication signals processing with Intel architecture based
servers and Samsung modems in a centralized communication center.
This minimizes the real estate costs and operations personnel
required to manage equipment at the local site, and allows for more
cost-effective centralized operations management.
CCC architecture applies virtualization technologies which enable the
management of overall network conditions at the communication center,
so that operators not only can effectively allocate radio resources
by time and place according to the volume of data traffic, but also
benefit from improving the scalability of network capacity.
In addition, CCC architecture allows operators to reduce the number
of base stations required and support a smooth network migration to
next generation mobile services. This is made possible by
software-oriented development while avoiding the conventional
approach of hardware-oriented system development.
The companies plan to begin their LTE trial test in the third quarter
of this year in Seoul, South Korea, and will strengthen their
partnership in CCC architecture to support multiple radio standards
and expand the market around the globe in the future.
