Verizon has begun using its advanced fiber-optic network to provide links to cellular towers and mobile switching offices, which helps wireless carriers meet the growing demand for top-quality, high-bandwidth wireless services.

The new links enable wireless carriers to offer next-generation services "at ultra-high-quality levels" that are difficult to achieve when using traditional copper-based or microwave links.

Verizon\'s fiber backhaul solutions include a switched Ethernet service, an all-Ethernet option, and an Ethernet over SONET (synchronous optical network) choice.
