Recently, I had the pleasure of presenting at LTE North America 2012 about developments in the microwave backhaul industry, including CommScope’s solution for improved interference immunity and spectrum re-use, the Sentinel™ Class 4 microwave antenna. For those of you who missed the event, you might be interested in this free FierceLive! webinar-on-demand titled “Backhaul Capacity Planning Solutions.”

I was one of four CommScope presenters who talked about the challenges for backhaul planning and solutions due to the massive increase in data transmissions. In this webinar, I cover most of what I discussed at LTE North America regarding Sentinel. In addition, CommScope’s Mark Gibson talks about our iQ.link software solution for microwave link design, while Tom Anderson covers our fiber backhaul solutions. Click the link to access the webinar for free after a brief sign-in. It’s about an hour long. You can also download a copy of the slides.

If anyone has more questions about microwave backhaul or CommScope’s solutions for this market, leave me a comment, and I will get back to you.
