“The single-access network is on the horizon as service providers seek technologies that will consolidate residential, business, MBH (mobile backhaul) and MFH (mobile fronthaul) traffic. In addition, residential customers want unlimited bandwidth to support 4K content and multimedia, as well as multiplayer online gaming,” said Julie Kunstler, Principal Analyst on the Ovum’s Service Provider Technology team.
