  • Minimize delays by using ARRIS as your turnkey provider for entire projects
  • Use ARRIS field optical passives to ensure 5 nines reliability

Wireless providers are being challenged by increasing consumer demand for multimedia, high bandwidth applications. As a result, cell towers continue grow in number. In addition, each existing and new tower carries an ever increasing amount of bandwidth for 3G and future 4G services. Costs for backhaul are currently estimated at 30-40% of wireless carrier OPEX spending. Cable operators are well-positioned for growth in the Cell Tower Backhaul market. Existing HFC networks can be easily leveraged to support backhaul services. The proximity of cable HFC networks to cell tower sites lets cable operators wire and transfer new and existing base stations faster and cheaper than telcos. ARRIS is ready today with flexible solutions that can have you up and running in the Cellular Backhaul business faster. ARRIS can minimize the delays commonly encountered with third party coordination. From project management and professional services, to optical solutions and plant construction equipment, we have the elements necessary to get you operational and generating money faster. Traffic from a cellular tower can be carried back to a switching center as a Time Division Multiplexed ( SDH/PDH/ATM ) stream or a Ethernet stream. Over time, due to continued cost per bit reductions, more traffic should shift to IP/Ethernet backhaul. Cable operators can light up cell tower backhaul services quickly, easily and with less capital investment than laying new fiber runs.
