AbstractMesh backhauls are getting attention for 5G networks, but not only. A backhaul mesh is attractive due to its multiple potential paths that grants redundancy and robustness. The real topology and its properties, however, is heavily influenced by the characteristics of the place where it is deployed, a fact that is rarely taken into account by scientific literature, mainly due to the lack of detailed topographic data. This WIP analyzes the impact of true topography on small backhaul meshes in nine different locations in Italy. Initial results stress how true data influence results and can help designing better networks and better services.
