5G fronthaul mandates higher data bandwidth than 4G access networks, which invariably requires the use of additional fiber optic links to support these higher throughputs. In addition to more fiber links, existing fiber infrastructure must also be leveraged as a critical path to 5G. As such, aging fiber networks need to support a mix of optical technologies, such as PON and DWDM. Meanwhile, networks are becoming denser to accommodate increasing cellular traffic and provide the improved coverage that 5G demands. These are some of the factors contributing to the vast number of small cell deployments—which in turn will require lots more fiber in more places.
In this webinar, we will present strategies for accelerating 5G fiber rollouts, including how to ensure existing fiber will support 5G to deliver top-notch quality of service (QoS), all while maximizing ROI.
