Could telecom copper be mobile gold for fixed operators?

14.10.2014

As the technological landscape constantly changes and develops, it is important not to lose sight of what is already in place.

Bonded copper solutions can provide enough capacity to accommodate data traffic volume demand – especially in suburban areas where growth is strong, and copper readily available.

Revolutionising existing copper, with a bonding solution, is amongst the least expensive backhaul options available.

Stephen Cooke considers the opportunity for fixed incumbents to become mobile players by using the existing copper network to provide backhaul bandwidth and power to small cells.

The session takes place within the Mobile Broadband track at 4.20 pm on Wednesday 22nd October. The panelists will discuss answers to questions such as:

  • What are the best alternatives to fibre when it comes to improving existing backhaul networks?  
  • How can operators meet customer demands whilst maximising ROI?  
  • Can operators delay investment in fibre without hindering performance?
  • What is the true cost of small cell backhaul?
