The backhaul provides the link from O2’s mobile cell sites back to their core network.
Part way through the trial, a film has been produced which catches up with O2 to look at the superfast network speeds consumers can look forward to and CBNL's backhaul technology being used behind the scenes.
Dr John Naylon, CTO at CBNL, explains how CBNL’s backhaul technology works to manage the huge data demands which 4G traffic brings.
CBNL’s technology addresses a global LTE market that ‘Markets and Markets’ expect to grow from $2.28 billion in 2010 to $262.05 billion in 2015, with the saturation of 3G networks, the demand for higher data rates and the need for network efficiency driving the market.
Recent analysis from Visiongain has indicated $10.84 billion will be spent on global LTE infrastructure in 2012 alone and is forecast to record strong and continuous growth over the next decade.
