The multipoint-to-multipoint network enables “any-to-any” dynamic capacity allocation – the capability to deliver capacity wherever and whenever needed. This is critical as data traffic varies with time and location.
Consider a city center with offices, restaurants, and shopping and entertainment center: Traffic in the offices builds up gradually as workers enter the offices in the morning. During lunch time, traffic concentrates in the restaurants. During the evening, traffic shifts from the offices to the shopping and entertainment center. With traditional systems, capacity from base stations is allocated to the offices, restaurants, and shopping and entertainment center in a static way and the system is dimensioned to carry the peak load in each location. With Dali’s SDN Radio Router™ technology, capacity can be routed from a central pool of base stations to hotspots when and where the high density of users is; and it only capacity that meets the aggregated demand of the area in scope is needed.
“Any-to-any” operation eliminates the need to provision every destination point with the peak capacity. This in-turn reduces capital and operational costs, and increases the utilization of valuable base station resources and spectrum assets.
