ABSTRACT

Objective - 4th Generation Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) networks offer significantly higher data rates and require suitably higher capacity backhaul networks. As a result, it is urgent to emerge new transmission technology as attempt to enhance the backhaul capacity. This paper worked in LTE MIMO 2×2, we used two Ethernet based technique, namely Ethernet over SDH and MPLS-TP to analyse the performance of network as the primary object by measuring and comparing the throughput, latency and jitter between Ethernet over SDH and MPLS-TP.

Methodology/Technique - We used bandwidth capacity 240 Mbps as plant bandwidth link, then we used this value as reference to get the best performance for those Ethernet based techniques that we used in this paper.

Findings - The results of measurement indicate that MPLS-TP is a way for achieving improvement in performance to support LTE network respect to Ethernet over SDH.

Novelty - D From all the testing results, we see that MPLS-TP has a better performance in the current assessment to satisfy LTE backhaul requirements.
