xsMOBILE BACKHAUL SOLUTIONS

Flexible mobile backhaul

The backhaul network consists of the ‘last mile’ between the base station and the Base Station Controller (BSC) or Radio Network Controller (RNC), as well as the transport network between the BSC/RNC and the core network. Deployment in the access transmission network demands backhaul connections, especially the pressure on the ‘middle-mile’ connection - the High RAN (HRAN). The higher-layer backhaul network between the first aggregation point or POC and the core network need fixed network upgrades.

Technologies in the core network are using all wavelengths available to have the maximum output on a network. This trend is moving into the backhaul network too; but to make full use of these wavelength technologies, a high-quality optical fibre is required. This is in addition to maximum flexibility, to be able to add a cell tower wherever there are issues in the network. Bending of standard optical fibres and water penetration (‘OH-peak’) have a negative effect on the available wavelength spectrum – bending disrupts the U-band, ‘OH-peak’ the E-band. Prysmian Group has the answer: BendBrightXS fibres.
