dc.description.abstract Wireless communication technologies such as microwave radios are used to provide high-speed mobile backhaul connectivity for radio access networks in cases in which wirebased alternatives, e.g. cable or fiber, are not readily available and cannot be deployed in an economic or timely manner. Current mobile backhauls are predominantly deployed in tree or ring topologies, which simplify traffic management. Yet, with the increasing demand on backhaul capacity and the immense cost pressure on mobile backhaul solutions, meshed wireless mobile backhauls have been identified as a promising evolution. While traffic management in wireless mesh networks have been studied extensively in the literature, so far there is no quantitative analysis comparing the different topology options, i.e. mesh, ring and tree, regarding network performance and deployment cost. This paper fills this gap by studying the minimum cost problem of connecting a set of base station/gateway sites using different topologies while supporting both time- and space-varying traffic demands. Furthermore, we consider the additional constraint of resilience to single link failures. The evaluation results show that meshed wireless backhaul topologies are a cost-effective alternative to trees and rings, in particular in the face of spatial and temporal fluctuation of traffic demand and protection against link failures
