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.

2018 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.
