      Mobile Backhaul Bonanza Ahead for Ethernet

      Mobile operators, according to Infonetics, over the past couple of years have deployed Ethernet for data and voice backhaul for 2G/3G networks because of confidence in IEEE 1588 and ITU-T Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) specifications that enable synchronization of clock frequency across the backhaul Ethernet network to meet the timing requirement for mobile voice traffic. As the deployment of 4G networks accelerates, Carrier Ethernet is firmly positioned to become the leading choice for meeting the need of data backhaul as well as the more stringent requirements for supporting mobile voice services in a way that gives operators much needed capex ...
