Wireless backhaul is a huge opportunity for Telco’s. Fueled by video and personal devices, mobile traffic is exploding – doubling, tripling or more year after year. There are over 300,000 cell sites in various stages of migrating from 2G to 3G to 4G to 5G. All of these cell sites will need additional backhaul capacity to move traffic to the mobile switch center. The best architecture for this depends on a variety of factors.
Explore different LightRiver architectures for Wireless Backhaul:
- Carrier Ethernet for Wireless Backhaul
- MPLS for Wireless Backhaul
- DWDM for Wireless Backhaul
Triple & Quadruple Play
Business performance is putting pressure on all aspects of the enterprise and the communications infrastructure is no different. Residential customers expect quality data, voice and video services, and commercial clients demand it. Business performance is putting pressure on all aspects of the enterprise and the communications infrastructure is no different. It must be efficient and cost effective, with quality data, voice and video services. While data demands are increasing, a network overbuild in every market is not feasible.
Quadruple play, combining the triple play service of broadband Internet access, television and telephone with wireless service provisions, especially to enterprise clients, only exacerbates an already challenging business environment.

Gigabit Transport Services for Carriers and Business Services
The networking industry is at a crucial point, as bandwidth demands for collaboration, video, and mobile traffic are increasing like never before, putting service provider networks under even more pressure. Service providers themselves are struggling to increase average revenue per user (ARPU), while reducing costs for upgrades and operations, and relying on Carriers Carrier’s and their extended technology partnerships more than ever.
LightRiver offers end-to-end 100 Gbps solutions, and above, that can span the core, network edge, data center, and optical transport. These custom network solutions are built on the latest innovations in high-speed optics, lowering the cost per bit, while dramatically scaling network capacity.
Many service providers want to provide enhanced metro Ethernet services, in the form of DWDM and Carrier Ethernet.
