Question Backhaul or backbone?


I'm making a little confusion with backhaul and backbone terms. In a context of a Wireless backbone network, can I use the term backhaul instead of backbone? If not, why?

I'm not sure on the backbone. But Backhaul is when you actually use an AP where you want to extend your network. Say for example when you have an AP serving the network, you can extend the wireless network thro mesh by having another AP without wired connection to brigde using radio. The AP which extends should be configured to use the AP which is currently connected to the network. Every child AP should be pointed to the parent AP to which it is connected. Hope i made sense.

Backbone/Backhaul refers to the high speed infrastructure (DS3's, E3's, SONET, SDH, etc), used by telco's, long distance carriers, even Internet, etc. Similar to a bus network from which we derive smaller networks inluding the last mile connection.
