With small cell backhaul expected to grow substantially over the next two years, it's vital that vendors help operators understand how to complement their existing network infrastructure by adding capacity with widespread coverage, supporting increased data traffic and building out high-speed data connections.

Small cell backhaul enables global operators to address numerous issues, including scalability, coverage, capacity and quality of service (QoS). Small cell backhaul solutions have developed to the point that they now address the needs of operator business models to provide efficient delivery of high-speed data services. Furthermore, network operators are utilizing small cell backhaul to increase data traffic. They're also experiencing the secondary benefits of improving user experience and, thus, reducing churn.

The number of small cells being deployed in major carrier networks is expected by some experts to result in a tenfold increase in the total number of access points available to customers. As the network scales to that level, issues like buildout, cost and maintenance become increasingly important.

For the future, the vendors that succeed will be those that deliver small cell backhaul solutions that improve profit margins for mobile carriers by cost-effectively addressing operational challenges through features like zero-touch rapid deployment and seamless access for high-bandwidth services.

Changing user behaviors and the evolution of capacity and how it's being utilized in public spaces and by increasing numbers of devices over time are just some of the factors that impact the significant growth of small cell backhaul. Also important is the quality of experience (QoE) attributes that are propelling growth in the market.

Though the adoption of these solutions is gradual due to concerns about total cost of ownership (TCO), small cell deployment location, trained labor and spectrum availability, these solutions are destined to for explosive growth around the globe. The important realities of small form factor, street-level coverage, increased capacity provisioning and the support for efficient spectrum utilization that backhaul solutions provide will drive demand.

‘Small Cells to Create a Bigger Backhaul Opportunity’ examines the small cell backhaul market, analyzing features most commonly found in today's solutions, strongest drivers in the market, verticals that show promise and challenges the industry faces. It includes a comparative analysis of solutions available, examines the geographic landscape of the market and details trends that are likely to occur in the industry over the next 18-24 months.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:

As shown in the following excerpt, several drivers will impact the small cell backhaul market over the next two years. Over the next 24 months, the strongest drives will be improving throughput and data rates for end users and providing improvements in network coverage with additional access points. Improving throughput and data rates for end users will see the highest priority growth as end-user demand increases and alternative Wi-Fi access networks compete for mobile device data; improvement in capacity will take place as operators add subscribers to their LTE networks and users demand higher bandwidth applications shared across a wider user base.
