Lower Cost Backhaul and Fronthaul

  • Fiber is essential for 4G, 4.5G, 4.9G and 5G deployments with the increased network traffic for the mobile path forward.

    Fiber infrastructure modeling helps the decision making for build versus lease options

    Fiber to the Antenna (FTTA) connections can be bandwidth (bps), wavelength (lambda), fiber core (dark fiber), or shared ducts (dark air).

    Design tools help make the correct network architecture financial and technical decisions.

    Reduced CAPEX and OPEX need to be balanced with capacity, coverage and efficiency demands.

    Clear investment ROI review and audit will help keep the spending on the correct network elements.
