Mobile backhaul is an important component of wireless networks and cannot be ignored in the transition from 3G to 4G and soon to 5G. In fact, backhaul is currently one of the biggest investments for carriers. Groundbreaking microwave antenna technology is making it possible for mobile operators to achieve their key performance indicators (KPIs) for backhaul. To learn more, see today’s blog post by Donald Gardner.
The most common source of the performance-degrading interference called passive intermodulation (PIM) is poor installation. That’s what CommScope’s Site Solutions and Services team has discovered over the years while performing audits of existing LTE sites. Installation errors are often related to improper connections that create PIM-generating problems. See today’s blog post by Mike Fabbri for more information and a link to the LTE Best Practices ebook.
