Cellular Backhaul

As more users and more data services are added to cellular networks, the demand for bandwidth within the network is constantly increasing. 

To meet this demand, carriers are forced to make cells smaller by splitting existing cells, and by installing new macro-, micro- and pico-cells in "urban canyons" with high network traffic. 

Providing backhaul using the traditional approach of T1 lines can be prohibitively expensive. 

Airvenue can help cellular carriers to cost-effectively send backhaul traffic from current and future cell sites by substituting Airvenue wireless multi-service switch/routers for the T1 lines. 

By sending backhaul traffic over a mesh network created by the Airvenue multi service architecture, carriers are able to inexpensively install new cell locations where needed - increasing network capacity and coverage - and virtually eliminate costly T1 trunks. 

Carriers can rely on Airvenue to handle their backhaul traffic because Airvenue's full product portfolio is truly carrier grade; capable of meeting the requirements for robustness, flexibility and ease of deployment insisted upon by carriers, including

By using Airvenue equipment to carry backhaul traffic, networks of hundreds of cellular sites can be served wirelessly from a single wired point of presence. This dramatically reduces the time to deploy a cellular network and significantly reduces ongoing operating costs.
