Now that the wireless industry has delivered on its promise of truly high-speed data service in the form of LTE along with the tablets and smartphones to exploit it, the challenge for wireless carriers lies in ensuring that the requisite high data rates are available seamlessly within a geographic area.

They also provide a way to offload network and backhaul traffic.
