Small Cell Backhaul – is Your Network Ready?
White Paper – Small Cells Backhaul Performance Assurance
The Era of Small Cell Backhaul Performance Assurance is now.
As low-power, short-range small cells emerge as the technology of choice for improving mobile network coverage and capacity; operators will need to ensure that subscribers have the same quality of experience on the new network of access points as they do on the traditional macro cellular network. Backhaul network performance is a significant contributing factor to the end user experience. But with the potential introduction of several thousand new small cells in the network, conventional methods of assuring mobile backhaul performance will not be economically feasible. The challenge that mobile network planners and field operations personnel face is how to monitor small–]cell backhaul performance during deployment and after service launch without adding significant capital or operating expenditure.
