Ericsson announced that its W-band (92 GHz -114 GHz) trials, conducted in partnership with Deutsche Telekom and Cosmote, proved the viability of the frequency bands for multi-gigabit wireless backhaul capacities for 5G and 6G.

Currently, wireless backhaul uses frequency bands from 4 GHz to 80 GHz to support 5G transport requirements. However, just as radio access networks need more capacity to keep up with demand, so do transport networks, making higher frequencies with broader channels for wireless backhaul more critical.
