Accedian Networks, a developer of Carrier Ethernet performance assurance Network Interface Devices (NIDs) and service management solutions, has announced that SureWest Communications is deploying Accedian Network’s platform to ensure high quality service delivery for its wireless carrier backhaul Ethernet-based mobile backhaul service.

The growth of smart phones and mobile broadband devices, coupled with the deployment of next generation mobile broadband applications, is creating a demand for bandwidth that cannot be met using the legacy mobile backhaul networks. Existing wireless backhaul networks originally designed for voice have a typical capacity of 1-3 Megabits per cell site and do not accommodate the onslaught of broadband data traffic, where mobile operators are seeing demand for 10-50 Megabits per cell site. SureWest’s fiber- and Ethernet-based networks in both the greater Sacramento and Kansas City regions more than meet this demand.
