MulteFire's End-to-End Architecture
Date / Time: Thursday, July 21, 2016, 11:00 a.m. New York / 4:00 p.m. London
sponsored by
Gabriel Brown, Senior Analyst - Wireless Data Services & LTE, Heavy Reading

Dr. György Wolfner, Senior System Specification Engineer, Nokia

MulteFire offers seamless authentication, the support capabilities of current LTE small cells, and end-to-end quality of service with end-to-end architecture. This architecture can be deployed in many configurations, including:

  • As a standalone private network that encompasses all of the LTE RAN and core network capabilities, including voice and data services
  • As above, but with roaming connectivity with mobile operators’ networks
  • As a RAN interconnection through an S1 interface, where it operates as part of a mobile operator’s existing network

In this webinar, Heavy Reading analyst Gabriel Brown and MulteFire Alliance E2E Work Group members will discuss the development and configurations of MulteFire’s architecture.

Attendees will learn how MulteFire’s E2E architecture covers:

  • Standalone deployment with or without external interworking like Enterprise office network
  • Tight 3GPP interworking deployment, such as mobile operator deployments for stadiums
  • Architecture that covers deployment scenarios for standalone networks, plus tight 3GPP interworking requirements such as an airport network supported by multiple service providers
  • Insights on the neutral host architecture that is useful in standalone deployments and EPC-connected architecture that is useful in tight 3GPP interworking deployments


Gabriel Brown, Senior Analyst - Wireless Data Services & LTE, Heavy Reading
Gabriel covers the mobile network system architecture, including evolution of the RAN, the mobile core, and service-layer platforms and applications. Key technologies in his coverage area include LTE Advanced, small cells, Evolved Packet Core, carrier Wi-Fi and software-centric networking technologies such as NFV, SDN and service chaining. Gabriel has covered mobile networking since 1998 through published research, live events, operator surveys and custom consulting.

Dr. György Wolfner, Senior System Specification Engineer, Nokia
György Wolfner has actively participated in MulteFire Alliance meetings since the Alliance was first established. He chairs the E2E Architecture Working Group, which is responsible for creating the general architecture for MulteFire and protocol specifications of the core network. György started his professional career at the research institute of the Hungarian Telecom in 1998. He joined Nokia in 1999, working as a system specification engineer and later as a product architect for different products of Nokia. He started supporting standardization work when 3GPP Rel-5 specifications were created and has been a regular 3GPP SA2 delegate of Nokia since 2003. His main expertise area is the interworking of 3GPP and non-3GPP systems. He participated in the creation of the 3GPP WLAN interworking solution in 3GPP Rel-6 and in the specification of the non-3GPP interworking architecture of LTE in 3GPP Rel-8.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
