
Backhaul: Once the “after thought” of the wireless infrastructure
Explosive growth in recent years
4G & LTE are pushing the limits of existing networks
Today’s MW solutions are more powerful and cost effective than ever
Gigabit & Beyond now possible
Wireless Backhaul is essential to today’s network!

PTP Applications
Licensed bands vs. Unlicensed bands
Licensed
Advantages
• No risk of interference
• Higher capacity
• FDD
• Lower Latency (<1mS)
• Product Reliability
• Network Reliability
Disadvantages
• Licensing fee
• Time waiting for license
• Typically more expensive
Unlicensed
Advantages
• No license required
• Quicker deployment
• Typically lower cost
Disadvantages
• High risk of interference
• Typically lower bandwidth
• Typically FDD
• High latency
• Interference causes poor
reliability

Conditional certification: User may be required to change out antenna if it causes interference.
Smaller antennas may be allowed in coordination.
*Higher throughput figure represents max throughput for small packets due to header compression

Redundancy Planning
 Redundant equipment increases overall
uptime and customers perceptions.
 Critical capacity.
 Backhaul links typically major backbones.
Redundancy Methods
 Alternate paths
 Redundant Rings
 2+0 or 1+1 Hot standby
 Unlicensed under-build
 On-hand Spares

Path Planning Considerations
Trango can Help!
 Pathcheck App
 Path Coordinates
 Rain Region
 Customized Path
Calculations
 Line of Sight
 Terrain Profiles
 Fresnel Zone
 Link Budgets
 Licensing Coordination
 Recommendations on
frequencies, antenna size,
modulation.
 Frequency coordination with
Radyn

Adaptive Coding & Modulation (ACM)
 Modulation can upshift or downshift without any loss of traffic – 100% hitless
 Increases link reliability

 Antenna & Radio data
 Free space loss
 Projected RX level
 Fade margin
 Rain rate & attenuation

Mobile Application for IP Backhaul
Planning
 GPS mapping with site placement and terrain data
 Max Tx power and antenna size based on selected frequency
band, regulatory region, channel bandwidth and rain region
 ITU rain region, Terrain and Fresnel zone profiles
 Site photographs, Map view of the point-to-point link
 RF link statistics displayed in real time
 Small Packet Capacity (Mbps), Large Packet Capacity (Mbps)
 Max Tx Power (dBm), Expected Rx Level (dBm)
 Rx Sensitivity (dBm), Fade Margin (dBm)
 Link Quality, Link Outage (minutes per year)
 Availability (% yearly)
 Email, print, and import/export of path profiles
 Quote request tool
Frequency Coordination
 Required site information
from Pathloss report,
tower call signs, etc.
 Analysis against existing
and proposed stations
(other microwave,
satellite, TV relay, etc.) to
ensure no interference or
performance impact.
 Confirm performance
matches FCC
requirements.
 Coordination per path.
19
FCC Licensing
Form 601
 Double and triple check coordinates, line of site and
Fresnel zone for path obstructions
 If no issues, submit to FCC
 Coordinator notifies other licensees in the area for
comment.
 Approx. 30 days for notice to be reviewed by licensees.
 Pay filing fees to FCC per site.
 $470 for new, $270 modification
 No fee for gov agencies
