The report stresses that the small cells backhaul solution may prove or brake the small cell business case. Specifics of small cells backhauls, their varieties and differences from macro cells backhauls are analyzed in details. The need for standardization is emphasized. The study of industry trends, interviews with vendors and the analysis of publically available statistical data helped to perform the marketing analysis. The survey of vendors (about 30 manufacturers of small cells backhaul equipment) reflects this industry specifics. There is a range of use cases for open access small cells, from targeted demand hotspots in city centers, through generalized capacity uplift, to serving not-spots in remote rural areas. In each case the emphasis on backhaul requirements shifts, and aspects that are critical to one type of deployment can be relaxed in others. Solutions with different characteristics will address the needs of different types of small cells backhaul in different areas.
Microwave backhauls for SCs are prevailing now and it is expected that they will keep this leadership position in future.
Attachments contain the in-depth analysis of promising small cell backhaul solutions:
1. 60 GHz technologies (V-band). Both Ethernet radio and 802.11ad solutions are addressed. Marketing and technical specifics are described in details. The survey of vendors is also provided.
2. 802.11ac. The technology allows gigabits throughput, range and other characteristics that satisfy small cell backhaul requirements. Authors analyzed specifics of 802.11ac as they relate to the small cell backhaul application; they also analyzed the market and vendors' portfolios.
3. E-band radio. Popularity of this radio for discussed applications is growing; and this trend will be even more pronounced when we are approaching the 5G era.
The report is written for a wide audience of telecommunications specialists that deal with complicated choices in mobile networking to support business cases.
