Source: Heavy Reading
With TeliaSonera claiming the world's first live Long Term Evolution (LTE) network and Verizon Wireless planning the world's largest-scale LTE launch from the end of 2010, cellular network upgrades increasingly must be planned with a view to supporting LTE as well as current generations of 2G and 3G traffic. In the backhaul network, 2010 figures to be a big year for turning up packet backhaul to support growing volumes of 3G data traffic: According to the latest edition of Heavy Reading's Ethernet Backhaul Quarterly Market Tracker, about 182,000 cell sites worldwide will be served by packet backhaul by the end of the year, representing 7 percent of all the world's cell sites.
