„All-Average“
The backhaul connection shall support the aggregated average capacity of all cells. The average capacity is determined under realistic air interface conditions and multiple users per cell.
„All-Average/Single-Peak“
The backhaul connection shall support the aggregated average capacity of all cells, while at least supporting the peak capacity of one cell.
„All-Peak“
The backhaul connection shall support the aggregated peak capacity of all cells (“non-blocking”). The peak capacity is determined under ideal air interface conditions and with a single user per cell. This approach will lead to over-dimensioning, thus usually extra costs.
