Essential Backhaul Economics
The rise of 4th Generation (4G) mobile technologies, and primarily LTE, are expected to significantly challenge the architecture and performance of existing microwave backhaul networks. The evolution of 4G networks will initially be realized through the LTE transformation of macro cells, and ultimately through the deployment of small cells that will increase the size and capacity of the network. The major increase in mobile network throughput and advanced features, such as the Self-Organising Network (SON), necessitate new advanced backhaul technologies to be adopted end-to-end (E2E). The associated challenge is to select an appropriate backhaul solution that would fit the small-cell concept, techno–economically. The required enhancement on the backhaul domain can be seen as an opportunity to proceed with structural changes, which would techno-economically optimize the network architecture, through the adoption of different radio backhaul technologies (PtP, PtMP, E-Band, unlicensed).
This webinar aims to present and discuss the essential backhaul economics associated with a redefined wireless backhaul design concept. During this webinar, registrants will have the opportunity to hear how to converge backhaul technologies, implementing synergies through interoperability, and optimizing the total cost of ownership (TCO) of a modern LTE backhaul network.
Key points to be addressed during this webinar include:
- Redefining the expectations for a modern backhaul network with an eye to the future
- Rethinking of the backhaul not as an infrastructure but as a service
- Discovering hidden value in common backhaul technologies and using them to improve performance
- Creating synergies of diverse radio technologies for TCO improvements
