The primary challenge from my experience is LOS issues on the link side. You can solve this by deploying more nodes or more injection points according to design and budget. The new 900 Mhz cards look interesting to link those few out of the way nodes.

Sure a dedicated backhaul and microcell are fine because that is what people have been building since forever. Mesh handles routing issues and requires routed networks. Is that the problem you see?
