UPN, Zayo carve out growing niche in turnkey wireless backhaul services

Wireless backhaul has become a big business opportunity for a growing number of wireline-centric service providers, but providing fiber and bandwidth services has become just one part of a broader equation for Unite Private Networks (UPN) and Zayo.

As more of their wireless operator customers have begun to roll out small cells to enhance coverage and capacity, these two service providers have begun offering a broader host of turnkey services, including site acquisition, construction and monitoring. Having these services in hand will make these service providers not only more competitive in the wholesale market, but also create larger revenue streams with what are long-term contracts.
