Carrier-Grade Ethernet transport is not a commodity!
Site Type Radius 4G BandwidthBackhaul Technology
macro 2-10 miles 50-300 Mbps Fiber or microwave
micro 0.2-2 miles 50-300 Mbps Fiber or microwave
pico300-1000 feet20-50 Mbps Fiber or microwave
femto<300 feet5-10 Mbps Cable or xDSL
Deployment of picocells and femtocells will explode as 4G networks are rolled-out in order to provide the required in-building coverage and capacity, and will present new backhaul challenges.
Objective: To evaluate the impact of a hybrid fiber-microwave network architecture in a Tier 1 market using real-world data
Input Data and Assumptions:
Evaluate % of sites reachable by:
MSC = Mobile Switching Center
FEP = Fiber Exchange Point
RF = Radio Frequency
