Small Cell Backhaul Services (2016)

By Andrew Smith, Juniper Networks

The growth in mobile voice and data usage is placing tremendous pressure on operators to build scalable backhaul networks to support emerging LTE and LTE-A architectures. At the same time, wireless spectrum is at a premium and must be used in an efficient manner, and the competitive market for cellular customers requires a consistent user experience. For these reasons, operators are exploring architectures to enable a small cell radio to be placed in or near residential or business environments. A modernized cable last mile and metro network could be one path forward. This paper will explore a possible architecture for large scale, small cell backhaul over a Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) and a contemporary all-packet metropolitan transport network.
