Qwest launches new backhaul solution for wireless providers

Last week, Qwest announced at the 4G World conference in Chicago that it is has launched a new backhaul solution for wireless providers.

Its new Wholesale’s Mobile Ethernet Backhaul service apparently can be modified to fit a provider’s requirements while designed to be a solution for its 3G, LTE and WiMAX needs. By leveraging Qwest’s fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) deployment, Qwest Mobile Ethernet Backhaul extends fiber to cellular sites in order to accommodate the increasing demands of next-generation mobile technologies such as smart phones, laptops, netbooks and other bandwidth-demanding devices.

Available in two Ethernet models, the service can be dedicated or shared to meet the unique needs of individual WSPs.

“Wireless users seem to have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth, whether they’re watching videos, sending pictures to friends, playing games online — you name it, ” said Qwest Wholesale Markets executive vice president Roland Thornton. “As new, enhanced personal mobile devices begin to flood the market, wireless service providers need to be able to keep pace with growing bandwidth demands. Qwest’s Ethernet backhaul services provide wireless service providers a smart, scalable solution to help manage their growing needs.”
