MEF said its recently approved Carrier Ethernet for mobile backhaul implementation agreement (IA) enables the application of existing MEF specifications and industry standards to meet the increasing demands on remote access network backhaul.

By offering a practical migration path to 3G and 4G services while preserving legacy services revenue, the IA allows mobile service providers to take part in two rapidly expanding markets -- the delivery of high bandwidth mobile applications and Carrier Ethernet.

According to Infonetics Research, the worldwide Ethernet (copper, fiber, and microwave) backhaul will add over one million new or converted connections between 2009 and 2011, creating one of the strongest telecom market segments in the face of the world economic downturn.
