Fronthaul and Backhaul Options for 4G/5G Operators
Investigating the transport and networking requirements of 5G as US operators move towards commercial launch
About 5G Transport & Networking Strategies
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. 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 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.
