The goal of the

Wireless Backhaul

Project Group is to define and build the next generation of modular wireless backhaul systems for 3G/4G and upcoming 5G networks.

The goal of this project group is to create an ecosystem to further advance wireless backhaul technology to help overcome traditional delays in deployments and meet critical time to market requirements with effective use of resources.

This group will work toward providing improvements to overall system performance with reliability and proactive capacity adjustments. The Wireless Backhaul solution will address ease of site configuration and turn up by reducing configuration overlap.

Join the Wireless Backhaul Project Group to collaborate with Operators, Infrastructure Providers, Academic Institutions, and Integrators in conceiving new ways of building, testing and deploying telecom network infrastructure.

  • Field upgradable modular frequency agile backhaul hardware, two to four channel system.
  • White box approach to support interoperability, allowing TIP Project Group-specified hardware from different sources to work with software from different sources
  • Wireless backhaul system processing at the system level, instead of the individual link level.
  • Router (Optical-DCSG) and wireless backhaul combined under one platform to create a unified transport solution


  • Architecture and design requirements for Multi Core dual band one box radio hardware with the recommendations of supported software specifications.
  • Validity of use case for two to four channel requirements using two different frequency bands from TCO and business perspective.
  • Inter-opt between hardware and software coming from different sources.
  • Specification of Unified Transport box to combine wireless and router functionality to meet seamless transmission based on radio frequency conditions and traffic requirements.
