Taking Risks to Stimulate Backhaul Demand - NSR May 2019
"Assuming a BTS 20 km away from the closest backbone node and satellite capacity pricing at $300 USD/Mbps/month, satellite is the most cost-effective solution if the station consumes under 600 GB/month. To add a bit of context, the average plan in Sub-Saharan Africa consumes 0.6 GB/month, so a new station supporting less than 1,000 subscribers would be most cost-effectively backhauled via satellite."

"When a satellite actor pitches a rural deployment to an MNO, aversion to change is one of the biggest barriers. For the commercial department, an additional site in a rural location might not move the needle for their sales targets, and most of their efforts are centered on marketing for urban areas. Similarly, the operations department usually likes to work with standardized products that do not add complexity to managing their network."

3 Reasons Why Latin America is a Hotbed for Cellular Backhaul - Via Satellite - Feb 2018
Within this analysis, I have identified three relevant advantages of the use of satellite cellular backhaul as the best option to connect remote areas:

1. Market Potential in Remote Areas
2. Operational Efficiency
3. Exponential Growth in the Demand of Mobile Data and High User Experience Demands

RSPG says light licensing could be a solution for 5G backhaul - PolicyTracker Jul 2015
"A new report by the Radio Spectrum Policy Group (RSPG), the inter-governmental group that advises the European Commission on spectrum matters, has identified light licensing as an “attractive” way of addressing growing demand for spectrum through wireless backhaul." Wireless backhaul users looking at 60 GHz and 70/80 GHz - but 5G also eyeing it. - "In these bands, the report argues that “light licensing or technology-neutral block licensing seem to be attractive alternatives to cope with the very high number of short links, compared to other approaches such as individual licensing, as they provide flexibility”. Licence-exemption is also identified as a “tempting option” but the report warns that this may result in unpredictable interference."

Comcast out, CenturyLink in as Denver Broncos upgrade Wi-Fi backhaul, Internet connectivity - FierceWirelessTech July 2014
"CenturyLink will install a 1 Gbps Internet circuit, with bandwidth up to 10 Gbps, at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver. "The new circuit, which will provide the Broncos with more than five times their current bandwidth, will deliver ultra-fast Internet traffic that will enhance fans' Wi-Fi experience at games or other events in the stadium," CenturyLink said. The service provider will also deploy a 10 Gbps optical wavelength circuit for connectivity between the stadium and the Broncos' training camp facility in the Dove Valley area of Arapahoe County, Colo., enabling better data synchronization, faster communication, and enhanced disaster recovery and business continuity." "The stadium Wi-Fi network ... can theoretically handle 25,000 concurrent users and was designed to support data offloading by all four major wireless operators. However, only Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) has signed on..."

Operators starting to plug LTE backhaul's security gap - FierceBroadbandWireless
"LTE transmissions have a massive security vulnerability in that backhaul traffic from the eNodeB to the IP core is unencrypted. Some operators have begun implementing IPsec to address this issue, but many have not because IPsec use is optional."

Will WiGig become as ubiquitous as its new partner Wi-Fi? — PolicyTracker: April 2013
"WiGig, a newly-standardised wireless technology that operates in the 60 GHz band, is expected to get a big boost this year when the powerful Wi-Fi Alliance absorbs the Wireless Gigabit Alliance and launches an interoperability certification programme." 59 to 64-68 GHz, depending on country; 2GHz channels; effective range 10-15 meters; beamforming helps with range Ali Sadri, Intel: “Where equivalent isotropically radiated power (EIRP) for UWB is -40 dbm, for WiGig it is +40 dbm” “We are talking 3 to 7 Gbps depending on the device configuration..."

Large network vendors deliver confused small cell backhaul messages - FierceBroadbandWireless
"The wide variety in wireless backhaul approaches--such as sub-6 GHz, 60 GHz V Band and 70/80 GHz E band--is confusing enough. And major vendors' repeatedly shuffled backhaul strategies have "left operators with little insight into roadmaps or how to begin modeling small cell deployments," wrote report author Ed Gubbins"

Ubiquiti talks wireless backhaul products and trendsMobile Technology | Wireless Broadband | Wireless Carriers | RCR U.S. Wireless News
Focus on AirFiber: new millimeter wave wireless backhaul. "AirFiber is a revolutionary high-speed wireless backhaul product delivering real throughputs at levels dramatically higher than the competition regardless of price. In order to do this, the design team needed to invent a lot of new processes and algorithms that were not available off-the-shelf. AirFiber has been built by Ubiquiti from the ground up to be a very powerful and versatile software-defined platform." "Up until now it didn’t make economic sense to deploy a picocell capable of 100 or so [megabits per second] throughput when the cost of the backhaul is higher than the cell-site equipment. ... We currently enable WISP’s ... but at some point the larger carriers will need to take the plunge into cost-effective transport for high data rate traffic. We will work to blur the artificial boundaries between unlicensed and licensed spectrum so that to the operator, the experience is totally seamless"

Wireless Backhaul Reform | = Aug 9, 2011
"Today, the FCC released a wireless backhaul item that implements key recommendations of the National Broadband Plan, by removing outdated regulatory barriers and unleashing additional spectrum for broadband services. The FCC’s actions will stimulate additional opportunities for broadband deployment, especially in rural America."

Overall Backhaul Overhaul Update: New Rules Adopted, More on the Way : CommLawBlog
" The FCC has now adopted the proposals it put forth a year ago to facilitate the use of fixed service spectrum for wireless backhaul" the new rules will: = Allow fixed service wireless into the 7 and 13 GHz bands currently occupied by broadcast auxiliary services (BAS) and cable TV relay service (CARS) = Permit adaptive modulation = Eliminate the “final link” rule
