Mobile Backhaul (MBH) is the process of connecting cell site air interfaces to wireline networks, which are subsequently connected to data centers that host the content and applications accessed by mobile users—both human and machine. Ciena delivers market-leading packet-based Carrier Ethernet solutions that offer robust, scalable, and cost-effective MBH network designs. In mobile network architecture, the backhaul infrastructure carries voice and data traffic between a cell site and its mobile switching center using copper, microwave or fiber for transport.
The interest in and importance of mobile backhaul strategy has increased as broadband services have evolved. As more carriers recognized the value of supporting all-packet-based 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) services, they have begun to think differently about the transport portion of their networks. They now see mobile backhaul more as a strategic asset than a problem to be solved.
Carriers are grappling with the best way to design their backhaul networks to ensure they're capable of handling anything that future LTE services throw their way. This is a thornier problem for legacy providers that rely heavily on traditional circuit technologies in the backhaul portion than it is for operators that have implemented an IP overlay. For emerging carriers or 4G WiMAX providers, like Clearwire, with no legacy infrastructure, it's a non-issue.
In 2017, the global Next-generation Mobile Backhaul Networks market size was xx million US$ and it is expected to reach xx million US$ by the end of 2025, with a CAGR of xx% during 2018-2025.
