Wireless backhaul can mean many things to many people. When you look at the evolution of wireless systems, you see the network changing drastically. The antenna array is getting smaller and the number of base stations are increasing. If statistics are your thing, in the US, we have a population of 315.5 million, while the number of wireless connections totaled almost 330 million (CTIA, 2011).
