New White Paper from Mobile World Live and Collinear
Explores Backhaul Solutions for Gigabit Future

Press Releases - March 2018

Santa Clara, CA – March 1, 2018

Collinear, developer of ultra-high capacity, over-the-air connectivity solutions for transforming network communications, today announced the availability of “Advanced Wireless Backhaul for the Data-Driven Future,” a new white paper produced in conjunction with Mobile World Live.

The white paper, released this week at Mobile World Congress Barcelona, explores existing wireless backhaul systems and the global network operator race to address network capacity issues introduced by new technologies such as 4G, 5G, and IoT.

The paper provides an in-depth dive into advanced hybrid wireless backhaul solutions, including microwave/E-Band and FSO/E-Band combinations, exploring the strengths of each and what’s right for a gigabit future.

“Increased connectivity across the globe and emerging technologies such as 4G, 5G, and IoT, place an enormous strain on current wireless backhaul networks,” said Vic McClelland, Chief Solutions Architect at Collinear. “Addressing this bottleneck with an ultra-high capacity and reliable hybrid solution, will allow operators and enterprise businesses the flexibility to upgrade their current infrastructure outside of a fiber-only solution.”
