The backhaul portion of the network is comprised of intermediate links between the core network and the small sub-networks at the "edge" of the entire hierarchical network. This is a critical area for professionals to understand because it is the side of the network that communicates with the global Internet. This practical resource serves as a comprehensive guide to designing mobile Ethernet backhauling (MEBH) services in metro areas using carrier Ethernet (CE) architecture. For the first time in any book, professionals find detailed advice on how to put together the many elements of the CE toolbox to create a coherent working design for a specific MEBH service. Engineers learn how all the CE components and standards interact and gain knowledge of their interdependencies. Practitioners also gain insight into the tradeoffs and consequences associated with selection of specific components for a particular project. It is suitable for wireless communications engineers and operators, technical managers, and industry training professionals.
