5G is placing new demands on the network. 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.
5G Transport & Networking Strategies will target 100-plus attendee decision-makers and executives from across the next-gen infrastructure ecosystem, including senior-level representation from premier Tier 1 carriers, such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
Among the key issues to be discussed are:
- 5G services and associated performance requirements
- Fronthaul and Cloud RAN architectures
- Distributed data centers and edge computing
- Metro and core optical networking
