The ongoing explosion in mobile broadband usage continues to drive billable revenue opportunities for today’s broadband carrier. While wireless backhaul is a relatively mature business, the number of devices connecting to the network continues to grow, and the ways in which those devices consume bandwidth only accelerates the wireless backhaul business opportunity.
Consider that the connected car trend, where cars will soon act as both a ‘device’ in their own right and as a hotspot for additional devices (via in-car Wi-Fi), is expected to grow at 21x the growth of wireless voice and data services by 2018, according to market research firm Infonetics. These and other key wireless backhaul trends are illustrated in CDG’s “Billing for the Growing Wireless Backhaul Opportunity ” infographic.
Indeed wireless backhaul continues to be a growth engine for carriers of all sizes. By 2017, Infonetics predicts $10.5 billion in billable service revenue from wholesale carrier Ethernet services, a mainstay of wireless backhaul traffic. CDG is working diligently to provide our clients with the necessary tools to effectively and accurately bill for wholesale services, ensuring they can continue to leverage growing business opportunities like mobile broadband.
