    The mobile data traffic increase and the future connection of billions of Internet of Things (IoT) devices require operators to reshape the existing transport network architecture. Today, more than 50 % of Base-stations (BTS) are backhauled via radio. Radio technology can continue to play this vital role in future transport networks if it is able to evolve to cope with the new capacity level and latency requirements supporting the new 5G services. In this paper, a possible answer to this demand is provided, proposing a radio solution working in D-Band (130-170 GHz) and enabling a reconfigurable meshed network that can support the backhaul needs of future 5G and beyond networks.
