Could mobile operators planning to move to fiber backhaul meet their backhaul requirements in the short term and save money, by deploying wireless backhaul first and move to fiber later?
Our model shows that over 10 years, operators can save up to 27% when deploying wireless first, and building a fiber network later.
Or they can save 31% when deploying wireless initially and leasing fiber later.
Find out the results of our financial analysis of using wireless backhaul as an interim solution for mobile operators planning to move to fiber that need to increase their backhaul capacity, but cannot (or cannot afford) to move to fiber today.
Download the paper "Wireless backhaul can ease transition to fiber. Mobile operators can lower backhaul TCO by using wireless backhaul now, and invest in fiber later".
For details on the more extended TCO model, get also the companion paper "Crucial economics for mobile data backhaul"
We will also present the result the results of the paper in a webinar on May May 16, 4:00pm CEST, 3:00pm BST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT. You are invited to attend, please register here.
