Microwave backhaul plays an important role in providing a good user experience and overall network performance. The backhaul capacity needed per base station differs substantially, depending on target data rates and population density.
Microwave backhaul technology is able to handle 100 percent of all radio access sites’ capacity needs. This is true for today as well as in 2020, when it will evolve to support multi-gigabit capacities in traditional frequency bands and beyond 10 gigabits in the millimeter wave.

Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 2 › Todays capacity in microwave networks is below 100 Mbps › In 2020 high capacity base stations will require backhaul in the 1 Gbps range › Very limited numbers of sites need capacity > 5 Gbps BackHaul Capacity Microwave is able to handle 100% of all radio access sites in 2020
  3. 3. Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 3 Backhaul media distribution Note: Data exclude China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan › Networks continue to be modernized using a combination of wireless and wired backhaul › In 2020, 65 percent of all cell sites will be connected with microwave solutions › The uptake of fiber is expected to continue globally, albeit at a slower pace towards 2020 The choice between fiber and microwave in backhaul networks will not be about capacity, it will be about fiber presence and TCO
  4. 4. Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 4 › Large regional differences - 5% in China vs. 85% in India › Microwave in North America growing with LTE › Large differences also within regions – Telecom Infrastructure maturity – Governmental fiber initiatives – Urban vs rural areas – Incumbent or competitive Regional differences in deployed microwave backhaul › In emerging mobile broadband countries today absolute majority of sites connected with Microwave › High microwave usage in both Urban and Rural areas for mature mobile broadband countries also in 2020.

Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 5 Microwave spectrum › Total spectrum for microwave backhaul covers around 40 GHz › New and higher spectrum will be required to enable radio access and cater for greater capacities and emerging applications in a 5G context
  6. 6. Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 6 › Large regional and national variances – Climate – Inter-site distances and – National spectrum regulations › The spectrum utilization varies across frequencies and regions. It can be improved with more harmonized spectrum regulations › 15-23 GHz the most widely used bands globally today and will continue to be so › 28-42 GHz have room for better utilization and offer wider channels, such as 56 MHz and 112 MHz Spectrum usage Note: Usage relative to 15 GHz, which is the world’s most deployed band
  7. 7. Microwave Towards 2020 presentation | Commercial in confidence | © Ericsson AB 2015 | 2015-09-18 | Page 7 E-band › The E-band has been opened in many countries and additional countries are rapidly being added › The advantages of the E-band are its wide spectrum and channels that enable very high capacities › Many countries use a light licensing regime and/or low spectrum fees E-band spectrum is key to cater for the capacity increase for backhaul as well as fronthaul
