1 Wired backhaul is more reliable because it uses a wired connection to transmit data, rather than Wi-Fi, which is an unlicensed spectrum, subject to uncontrollable interference. A wired backhaul also enables a better Wi-Fi experience as the connection between access points is not using up valuable air time, as a result, that airtime can be used by client devices on the network.
