Mobile fronthaul involves the movement of data and voice from a cell site remote radio head (RRH) to a centralized baseband unit (BBU), which then connects to the mobile telephone switching office (MTSO). With mobile fronthaul, the RU equipment falls under the RRH heading, but is still located at the macro cell site. Similarly, the BBU moves to a centralized location, where it serves multiple RRHs. The optical links that connect the BBU to multiple RRHs is referred to as Mobile Fronthaul. With a mobile fronthaul network in place, providers can take advantage of Optical Transport Network (OTN) technology to move data from the cell sites to the BBUs.

Mobile fronthaul enables the maximum and efficient utilization of all the network equipment. Mobile fronthaul technology gathers statistics about each connection and each link, including BER, as well as uplink and downlink delays. Mobile fronthaul technology allows remote configuration of each node and into which OTN container each CPRI link should be mapped. Mobile fronthaul enables load-based sizing of the fronthaul traffic. CPRI links from small cells or secondary carrier/sectors can be selectively enabled or disabled for fronthaul transport
