With 5G, more data than ever before—exponentially more—will need to move at faster rates, more reliably and with extremely low latency than previously imagined. With such high expectations, there’s big pressure on the transport network to get 5G transformation done right. So how does that all break down for fronthaul, midhaul and backhaul networks and what are the fundamental technologies required for emerging 5G services?
This 2-part webinar series will delve into new requirements and relevant challenges inherent in an evolving transport network, as well as address test parameters to measure critical performance criteria for latency, capacity and throughput.
Part 1: Enabling new 5G services: Key technology requirements and challenges for transport networks
Part 1 of the webinar series will provide deeper insights into the new technical requirements and challenges faced by network operators as legacy/4G transport infrastructure will be required to coexist with 5G. We will cover emerging technologies such as eCPRI/xRAN, Ethernet-based fronthaul, time-sensitive networking (TSN), as well as new capabilities including functional split options and network slicing. We will also explore how new 5G deployments will have a significant impact on the underlying transport infrastructure.
