Moving 60/80 GHz Solutions to the Edge
High Capacity Millimeter Wave Solutions for 4G/LTE Backhaul

Thursday September 27, 2012
2:00pm EDT/ 11:00am PDT

According to a recent report by Cisco (Cisco Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update, 2011–2016), mobile data traffic is expected to grow at a CAGR of 78 percent between 2011 and 2016. With this mobile data explosion, carriers are looking at new ways of offloading traffic and considering new topologies such as micro or picocells to help with the capacity crunch. Millimeter wave solutions operating in the 60 – 80 GHz bands are expected to play a major role in the rollout of these 4G/LTE services.

As more regulators open millimeter wave spectrum, equipment vendors continue to increase functionality and drive down radio costs, these solutions will play a critical role in both macrocell and picocell backhaul in next gen mobile networks.

Join 4GWE/TMCNet and BridgeWave Communications for an educational webinar and learn how these 60 – 80 GHz millimeter wave solutions provide mobile operators with a cost effective, future-proof backhaul solution as they roll out 4G/LTE services.

Attendees will learn?

  • The drivers behind the exponentially increasing bandwidth demands of next generation mobile networks & how operators are architecting their networks to handle this data explosion.
  • How millimeter wave radios are ideal for next generation base station interconnect and can cost effectively handle these demands in both the macrocell & smallcell networks.
  • Characteristics of 70/80 GHz millimeter wave systems, how they differ from their lower frequency band counterparts & how they can effectively address macrocell backhaul connectivity.
  • Characteristics of 60 GHz millimeter wave systems and how this unique frequency band is ideal for small cell (micro/picocell) backhaul.
Who should attend?
  • Network Operators
  • Mobile Carriers
  • Service Providers
  • Network Architecture Consultants
