Today, operators in many parts of the world are supporting multi-generation wireless networks. As deployment of next generation network access technologies gain momentum, many operators will endure a transition period where legacy services based in the time domain will need to coexist with pure IP oriented packet data services.
With this in mind, network backhaul planning and design have become much more strategic than in the recent past. So much so that three out of four mobile operators are choosing backhaul network solutions independent of other network infrastructure.
This brief video with Heavy Reading’s Patrick Donegan and Shailesh Shukla of Cisco, speaks to the trend and provides insight into the countless benefits of evaluating backhaul solutions based on their own merits. The conversation is particularly germane as network operators continue the move towards fixed-mobile convergence.
