Why 5G Transport?

With 5G rollout accelerating globally, the fixed transport infrastructure not only interconnects fixed-line infrastructure, but also traffic between mobile data centre and antenna sites. This leaves us with the question of how to design the most efficient, cost-saving and future-proof transport network to meet the demands of 5G transport.

Optical networks provide several options for 5G transport, including but not limited to: grey optics, wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) solutions and TDM-PON. The increasingly important role of pluggable optics is also apparent with operators looking to apply the advantages of pluggable optics to their emerging 5G transport networks.

Against this backdrop, 5G Transport presents an opportunity for Service Providers and vendors to boost revenue streams with a mobile transport solution in addition to their fixed services.
