New way to verify 5G fronthaul OSP fiber networks
This webinar details a new, comprehensive approach to validating 5G fronthaul outside plant (OSP) optical networks. The webinar is structured in three parts, each lasting around 10 minutes.
Part 1: Technology overview and evolution of 5G fronthaul network
The introduction will provide a technical overview of technologies presently deployed and a glimpse into upcoming trends and their impact on the fronthaul architecture.
Part 2: Construction and activation using portable test equipment
Review of real-life examples and field results to explain what should be done during construction, installation, and activation phases of the fronthaul fiber-optic network to guarantee optimal quality and stability of 5G services.
Part 3: Burn-in and monitoring of fronthaul fiber
This part explores centralized fiber monitoring which helps to capture degradations of the optical fiber over time and correlates issues with environmental conditions. Distinguishing whether the detected problem is at the physical layer or at an upper layer is key to sending the right person at the right time to the right place. The webinar will show the need for centralized fiber monitoring as an inherent part of the 5G deployment structure through real-life examples and scenarios.
