The article focuses on the need for revamping wireless networks to provide efficient support on the delivery of voice, video, and data services. Such overhaul requires more fiber in wireless backhaul networks as well as bandwidth requirements. However, due to an increasing demand for bandwidth, network carriers are uncertain whether backhaul networks are to be run separately for voice and data or to combine them into a single infrastructure despite being costly.
