Backhaul Inside Out Webinar Slide Deck Oct 2011


Published on

The evolution of mobile networks to 4G technologies, and primarily LTE, sets additional requirements and challenges for operator backhaul networks. The selection of flexible and future-proof microwave backhaul technologies is of paramount importance. Join this webinar to learn from Maravedis and Intracom wireless experts about critical trends in backhaul technologies and markets.

In this webinar you will learn:

•Specific benefits that different architecture types provide for 4G deployments, including ease of deployment, agility and resiliency.

•How the use of Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) technology, which can perfectly complement Point-to-Point (PtP) microwave (MW), especially in urban and dense urban areas, can transform an operator\'s business model and generate a rapid ROI.

•How solutions that combine compact high-nodal PtP, multi-sector PtMP and full outdoor PtP/E-band variants offer unique network deployment benefits in high-density urban areas
