Johnson: Microwave backhaul to grow in 2012, even as carriers cut capex

Microwave mobile backhaul in 2011 weathered the economic storm fairly well, even here in North America.  Emmy Johnson, the founder of Sky Light Research,  writes that the backhaul market is expected to see positive growth in 2012, despite operators' plans to either slow or restructure capital expenditures. Sky Light Research believes that backhaul is one area in the network that will continue to receive funding, due to the critical role backhaul plays.
