Executive Summary

This paper is geared to mobile service providers that are facing escalating demands for capacity and next generation services, and for fixed line providers who see mobile backhaul network services as a new revenue opportunity. It provides generic guidelines for Ethernet backhaul architectures for mobile networks (2G, 3G, 4G/LTE) and explains how to apply existing MEF specifications, including MEF Mobile Backhaul Implementation Agreement - Phase 1, approved in January 2009 as MEF 22. To meet these demands, next generation mobile equipment and networks are migrating to Ethernet, which is optimized for packet data traffic and is becoming increasingly available at sites because of Ethernet's flexibility to be transported over a multitude of transport media (fiber, copper, and microwave).
