Fronthaul and Backhaul Options for 4G/5G Operators

5G Transport & the Edge

About the Event:

To serve multigigabit radio sites, to meet the demands of ultra-low latency applications, and to scale to immense new markets, operators need to invest in the connectivity fabric that will underpin 5G. This next-gen transport infrastructure connects RAN sites to data centers and cloud services providers, and is fundamental to success in the 5G-era.

This event will investigate the transport and networking requirements of 5G, addressing fronthaul architectures, metro optical, and edge data center connectivity. 

Key topics to be discussed include:
  • 5G Services and associated performance requirements
  • Fronthaul and Cloud RAN architectures
  • Distributed data centers and edge computing
  • Metro and core optical network

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
