Verizon Wireless beefing up backhaul with carrier Ethernet

Source: Telephony Online
VZW prepares for 4G launch by adding more fiber to the bases station and transitioning from TDM to carrier Ethernet transport.

In preparation for the coming onslaught of 3G and 4G capacity demands, Verizon Wireless is making a major upgrade to its backhaul network that will see fiber pushed to thousands of new cell sites and the replacement of legacy transmission links with carrier Ethernet, allowing Verizon to more effectively scale capacity and better manage the expected data traffic spikes.
