Boom in Mobile Data Creates Backhaul Urgency
In their bid to improve their profitability and maintain their competitiveness, many mobile operators are rolling out new services meant to generate revenue and increase usage. Unfortunately, the average revenue per user (ARPU) from new services does not offset the rising capital and operating expense (CAPEX/OPEX) of meeting increased capacity requirements. Consequently, operators need to evolve their mobile backhaul networks to reduce costs without impacting customer satisfaction. This paper will identify the challenges mobile operators face in the current environment; outline the steps they can take to evolve the backhaul network to support greater capacity at lower cost; and examine the role of a trusted partner in helping implement a mobile backhaul solution that meets their specific business imperatives.
