The mobile telecommunications industry is in the throes of yet another generational change, the demands placed upon bandwidth are far greater than operators have experienced before – and the move to 4G has moved far faster than its predecessor 3G. But why is this? Why did it take many years for 3G networks to generate material returns for the majority of operators, whilst 4G’s success has soared? And how is the industry responding to such rapid developments in technology? There is a varied array of solutions on offer to provide mobile backhaul and meet new bandwidth demands. These include many new developments in fibre, microwave, wireless and copper, and it is the range of highly innovative copper-based solutions that continue to take the industry by storm. Operators looking to meet the challenge of relieving their backhaul bottleneck would do well to consider the revolutionary copper options as a serious contender to other technologies. Mobile data usage growth and consumption trends   The rapidly accelerating consumption of mobile data is being driven by consumer adoption of smart phones, wearable devices and mobile-connected tablets in parallel with 3G and 4G deployments. Cisco’s VNI Mobile Data research found that that global mobile data traffic will increase nearly 11…
