Providing backhaul for third-and fourth-generation wireless systems has become one of the greatest issues facing wireless carriers as data rates dramatically increase as a result of high-speed wireless access methods such as HSPA+, LTE, and WiMAX. Microwave point-to-point links are proving to be a cost-effective solution. As always, interference is always an issue, and cavity filters can play a vital role in eliminating it in both new and existing installations. “The Importance of Filters in Point-to-Point Microwave Cellular Backhaul Networks” provides useful information for anyone involved in the installation and maintenance of these systems.
