ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of latest cellular wireless technology by the cable operators in their service lineups to get connected to the cellular world. Cellular carriers are increasingly looking to backhaul alternatives not only to lower their costs but also to gain a useful connection safety network. Buying T-1 connections to a cell site from multiple providers means that if any one of them fails, the traffic can continue to flow over the alternate routes. Many wireless carriers are now seeking out multiple providers at key cell sites.
