Mobile Backhaul

Research Service

Network congestion due to exponential growth in mobile data usage in the past five years means many mobile operators have been forced to find quick new solutions other than adding parallel T1/E1's to adjust the required bandwidth for mobile backhaul.

T1/E1 has become cost-prohibitive in meeting high speed 3G and 4G bandwidth requirements. This, paired with the inevitable move toward all-IP 4G networks, provides an initial glimpse of the issues that current backhaul solutions must solve. Carrier Ethernet can handle larger amounts of data at a lower cost per bit, but other issues, such as synchronization, arise. What role will VDSL, microwave and satellite technologies have in future 4G deployments?  How will backhaul for small cells be achieved?
