Wireless backhaul part of Cox's $200M 'carrier services' business

Cox Communications isn't a name that's often heard in discussions about the mobile industry, but wireless clearly plays a substantial role in its business model. Cox's carrier division is a $200 million business focused on backhaul, according to Cox Business Senior Vice President Steve Rowley, helping to connect mobile networks to its wireline infrastructure.

"If you think of the AT&Ts and the Verizons and the T-Mobiles of the world, having to backhaul the service to their towers and move that data of the network," Rowley told FierceCable in a Hot Seat interview. As traffic continues to ramp up and 5G networks begin to come online, that backhaul is likely to be more important than ever for mobile carriers. Hot Seat
