FTTH: THE Solution for Mobile Broadband? Focus on Europe
As higher data rates and capacity are significantly impacting the mobile backhaul network, the need is clear to invest in backhaul network upgrades to cope with rising traffic consumption. This will be even more needed with the arrival of LTE as it requires significantly more capacity. Furthermore the evolution towards small cells architecture configuration will redefine the backhaul need for mobile networks (capillarity of small cells). The upgrade of backhaul capacity might be a special opportunity for operators to share fixed and mobile investments: in particular expanding FTTH coverage while meeting backhaul needs.
In this context, in 2012, IDATE has been selected by FTTH Council Europe and FTTH Council APAC to analyse key issues linked to FTTH usage for backhauling. Around 20 Mobile telcos around the world have been interviewed during this study.
