What does it really take to build a 700 MHz network?
Certainly, engineering a network at 700 MHz involves a number of design and transmission considerations. Once the propagation and interference studies are complete, and the licenses applied for, then the real work begins.
What active and passive components are needed to build a complete base station through which customers connect with the network? What about the backhaul? Will it be microwave radio that operators own, or leased circuits over copper or fiber cable? Then, what elements are needed in the core switching network to manage the various services that operators may be planning?
Once a bill of materials for the complete network is compiled, from which suppliers can operators purchase the needed equipment? And what capital investment levels must operators budget to get the network up and running?
