Our pal Gary Kim highlighted up the In-Stat report on Wireless Backhaul.
Its an interesting report and helps to show some segmentation in the marketplace. For Verizon the LTE build out has them moving as much as possible to fiber and MetroEthernet.
Outside of majority the base stations are taking advantage of the Microwave which means Fixed WiMAX is a winner for a lot of implementations.
MetroEthernet is going to claim about half of the market place according to In-Stat because the migration to support data means circuit switch trunking is no longer viable, and the equivalent costs associated with Special Access is becoming a bone of contention in Washington.
As the network data traffic grows the relevance of the circuit switched models using T-1s is reduced. Mind you the commitment to bring voice on to the data side is limited at best.
A very real benefit of MetroEthernet to the links between the RAN and the core network is the ability to have better distributed redundancy and QoS for traffic shaping.
