ENABLING THE 5G FUTURE WITH NEXT-GENERATION TRANSPORT & EDGE TECHNOLOGIES

5G Transport & the Edge

About the Event:

5G is driving a new network architecture. To meet the demands of multi-gigabit RANs, advanced low-latency applications, and multi-access cloud services, a next-generation "connectivity fabric" is essential.  This transport infrastructure, which connects diverse network assets with service logic and content distributed across multiple cloud locations, is fundamental to success in the 5G era.

This event will investigate the design of advanced 5G transport networks and the integration with edge cloud infrastructure and services.

Key topics to be discussed include:
  • 5G RAN evolution
  • Fronthaul and midhaul in Cloud RAN/vRAN deployments
  • Packet optical metro and core networks
  • Distributed data centers, edge computing, and cloud networking

Attendees will comprise decision-makers, executives, and engineers from across the networking ecosystem including senior-level representation from Tier 1 mobile and wireline carriers.

Event Hosts:

Gabriel Brown Principal Analyst - Mobile Networks and 5G Heavy Reading

Sterling Perrin Principal Analyst - Optical Networking & Transport Heavy Reading
