5G mobile network deployments: looking back and looking forward

  • December 17, 2020

Guillaume Lavallée

Product Line Manager

Guillaume Lavallée is a Product Line Manager at EXFO. Guillaume is responsible for the optical solutions in the Installation & Maintenance division. He holds an MBA and a university degree in Physics Engineering specialized in optics. Guillaume has over 12 years of experience in the telecom industry during which he has built a strong expertise in test and measurement best practices.

Fiber infrastructure installation and maintenance are critical to the success of 5G mobile networks.

Existing fiber infrastructure must be leveraged as a critical path to 5G. Aging fiber networks need to support a mix of optical technologies, such as PON and DWDM. Meanwhile, networks are becoming denser in order to accommodate increasing cellular traffic and coverage mandated by 5G.

These factors are leading to enormous numbers of small cell deployments requiring more fiber in more places, using more multi-fiber cables—and the potential for more network issues.

In this session, Guillaume Lavallée will present strategies for accelerating 5G fiber rollouts and delivering top-notch quality of service (QoS) performance results, all while maximizing ROI.

Key takeaways:

  • Retrospective: challenges of early 5G rollouts
  • Major network architecture trends
  • Challenges related to multi-fiber cables in dense environments
  • Best practices for accelerating future 5G fiber rollouts
