Backhaul is considered to be in the top three challenges in deploying RAN. With the traditional approach, bringing backhaul to a site takes a long time and requires a substantial upfront investment because in order to deliver the highest speed possible, Service Providers need very expensive backhaul fiber. Backhaul technology requirements should focus firstly on the flexibility of using different types of backhaul – whatever is available at the potential deployment site, secondly, be easily configurable for mass deployments of small cells, and thirdly, be resilient to any type of failures. These three requirements of backhaul flexibility, automation and resilience were taken into consideration when Parallel Wireless developed their backhaul solution.
