Backhaul Definition and Meaning

 Backhaul Definition and Meaning:

A WiMAX tower station can connect directly to the Internet using a high bandwidth, wired connection (for example, a T3 line). It can also connect to another WiMAX tower using a line-of-sight, microwave link.

Backhaul refers both to the connection from the access point back to the base station and to the connection from the base station to the core network. 

It is possible to connect several base stations to one another using high-speed backhaul microwave links. This would also allow for roaming by a WiMAX subscriber from one base station coverage area to another, similar to the roaming enabled by cell phones.
