Impacts of LTE on PTN Mobile Backhaul
Author: Babak Samimi
While carriers worldwide are embracing the new 4G/LTE era, PTN, the mobile backhaul technology, is in need of essential upgrades to address complex networking challenges. Some of the challenges might be big enough to spark a PTN technology revolution.
Carriers are moving to LTE for its much faster data rate to cope with ever-increasing mobile data traffic. So it’s no surprise that the backhaul network needs to scale up in capacity and performance to match LTE. With multiple simultaneous technology inflection points from radio to backhaul, the complexities introduced to address these needs are opening doors for innovation.
