Backhaul economics have never been out of the spotlight and with millions of small cells on the horizon how will operators cope?
This presentation provides:
• The latest financial comparison of backhaul solutions
• An insight as to what options and challenges operators face next
• An overview of the total cost of ownership model used to create the analysis
Senza Fili has completed one of the most thorough analyses of backhaul technologies ever attempted.
It is based on a total cost of ownership model and compares the capex and opex of fibre, microwave and E-band point-to-point, and microwave point-to-multipoint backhaul for different configurations of LTE, 3G, and small-cell networks over a period of five years.
The model also takes into account architectural differences and, for perhaps the first time, takes aggregation benefits into account. The cost of backhaul per site and per Mb/s is compared.
The findings are summarised in the recent Senza Fili white paper ‘Crucial economics for mobile data backhaul’.
