The backhaul is a cornerstone in the development of future cellular networks and not the least challenging. The difficulty of designing the future backhaul is in the expected range of performance metrics that is increasing in breadth and in rising standards. Novel ideas for solving the heterogeneous backhaul problem are frequently proposed. Tractable analytical models that capture the performance of such backhauls are crucial in order to verify and validate these ideas. We present the first modular and scalable framework for analytically modelling the performance of hybrid multi-hop backhauls, which employs technology-specific models of different performance aspects of each hop.
