What is Backhaul?

Backhaul is the section of a telecommunications network that connects access nodes (cellular tower, WiMAX tower, DSLAM etc.) to the core network. For example, connecting wireless base stations to the mobile operator's main network on which regional and even nationwide traffic is delivered.

What is Fronthaul?

The term fronthaul refers to new technologies that allow transport between a remote radio unit and baseband unit in front of the base station, with a controlling macro base station. Fronthaul allows mobile network operators to use detached radio and baseband units (such as remote radio-heads) avoiding the need to deploy and manage full-featured base-station or cells and thus reducing the total network’s cost of ownership.

What does Ceragon sell into the backhaul market?

Ceragon designs and sells high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions using point-to-point microwave radio relay transmission.

What does “high capacity” mean?

High capacity can also be referred to as high bandwidth. High capacity systems transmit voice and data with bit-rates ranging from as low as 44Mbps up to several Gbps.

Ceragon provides high-capacity wireless backhaul solutions. Are there alternative backhaul methods?

There are several alternative backhaul methods.

T1/E1 which uses copper telephone lines is the most common means of cellular backhaul. While the number of copper lines already in deployment is very high and the technology mature enough to ensure relatively low service costs, T1/E1 has limited bandwidth of only 1.44 Mbps. A cellular base-station can have several copper T1/E1 lines connected to it, but as traffic capacity increases – due to added number of consumers and the proliferation of bandwidth demanding services – copper lines are gradually being replaced with higher-capacity technologies.

Fiber optics may also be used for backhauling. Fiber provides virtually unlimited bandwidth capacity – where it is available. However, deploying new fiber is an expensive endeavor. Bringing fiber to areas that are out of fiber reach, for example: Greenfield deployments as well as many of the world's cellular base-stations, is cost prohibitive and leads Carriers to opt for more cost efficient solutions.
WiMAX, or Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, was also considered for backhaul applications. However, Using WiMAX in the backhaul is not an efficient use of scarce and valuable spectrum. WiMAX may be considered for cellular backhaul in markets where carriers have WiMAX spectrum that is not being used for WiMAX access networks.

Microwave backhaul solutions – such as those offered by Ceragon – are therefore ideal for new and established carriers helping to increase network capacity while reducing backhaul expenditure.
