Fast backhaul deployment for top LTE performance
To meet soaring mobile broadband demand, operators are deploying and upgrading base stations fast, often leaving insufficient time for new fiber backhaul connections to be implemented. The solution to the transport challenge is microwave technology, which has evolved from supporting Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) to meeting the backhaul needs of IP-based LTE radio networks.
Nokia Networks’ broad suite of microwave transport products for access, aggregation and core networks gives you the flexibility to build a highly-efficient packet-based backhaul network to meet your LTE radio network needs. You benefit from a single, fully-tested and integrated microwave transport solution that is supported by our end-to-end network management to reduce your costs and help ensure rapid roll-out.
Using licensed and unlicensed frequencies from sub-6 GHz to 80 GHz, the solution supports both hybrid and full-packet traffic modes, so you can choose any evolutionary path from legacy TDM-based to all-IP backhaul using a single platform with up to 2.5 Gbps per channel across the entire transport network.
The solution also meets the growing needs of small cell deployments, with 3G/4G microcell and rural site backhaul capabilities integrated with Nokia Flexi Lite and Flexi Compact Base Stations to minimize your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), site space demands and power consumption.
The business benefits
- Reduces CAPEX and OPEX through high network efficiency and easy evolution to IP backhaul
- Improves subscriber retention and loyalty with a superior end-user experience
- High spectral efficiency reduces your total cost of ownership (TCO)
- Accelerates return-on-investment by enabling fast service roll-out
