Qwest Launches New Mobile Ethernet Backhaul Service

Qwest Communications has launched a fiber-based, Ethernet backhaul service designed for wireless service providers (WSPs). The Qwest Mobile Ethernet Backhaul service leverages Qwest's fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) deployment, extending fiber to cellular sites.

Qwest Wholesale said it is ready to provide incremental, scalable bandwidth to WSPs, enabling them to increase capacity to cell sites on an as-needed basis. Bandwidth to cell sites is managed primarily through software, rather than equipment upgrades in the field, which helps to contain costs, simplify operations and accelerate provisioning times.
