Abstract

We describe a novel wireless backhaul solution, called Self-Optimizing Wireless Mesh Network (SWMN), which is targeted for interconnecting 5G small cell nodes cost-efficiently and smartly. SWMN is not only highly resilient and scalable, but it is also equipped with advanced Self-Organizing Network (SON) capabilities offering autonomous network configuration and traffic engineering features. The key aspect of SWMN is an innovative network intelligence engine coupled with beam steerable pencil beam millimeter wave (mmW) high capacity backhaul radio.
