Mobile Network Operators

The wireless network is quickly evolving. To address the latency between mobile devices and the mobile network operator's (MNO) mobile packet core (MPC), mobile networks are beginning to deploy evolved packet core (EPC) equipment. But this technology, which supports new access standards such as LTE that deliver greater data capacity to customers with lower latency, is only part of the solution. To truly achieve the lowest latency and greatest capacity, the future EPC architecture must reflect today's wireline architecture as a reference.
