Cell Site Backhaul Optimization
At the base of a cell site tower is more than a CDMA or GSM base station needing a T1/E1 connection. There is a host of equipment interfaces needing to be groomed, consolidated, aggregated and sent along with the mobile communications back to the central office. Various solutions are available to backhaul all of these different connections whether remote antennae management, door alarms and/or FXO/FXS craftsperson phone set support. Ultra-versatile Channel Service and Data Service Units (CSU/DSU), TDM/PDH/SONET/SDH Multiplexers, Pseudowire or T1/E1 circuit emulation over packet networks all support driving down the cost of delivering backhaul to GSM, UMTS and CDMA base transceiver sub-stations (BTS) by optimizing the multiple connections needed to support overall cell site operations.
