Westin Times Square,
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.

KEY EVENT STATISTICS
2019 SPEAKERS & MODERATORS
Overall very superb job with extremely relevant concise material and feedback. A lot of succinct material packed into a small amount of time.
Level 3 Communications
I was extremely impressed by both the content and the presenters at 5G Transport & Networking Strategies. Even more so since it's was a first-time event for Light Reading. Given the nascent nature of this area, it was very helpful to hear varying viewpoints on the technology and how it will be used.
The 5G strategies content was timely; the speakers were both informative and challenging.
