Meeting the 5G XHaul Challenge

金曜日, 4月 26, 2019

Time: 10:00 am New York / 3:00 pm London


Overview: 
Enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine-type communications, and ultra-reliable and ultra-low latency communications are the primary use cases that define 5G. While most of the industry focuses on 5G NR, the transport network has a critical role to play in 5G by providing the fronthaul, midhaul, and backhaul infrastructure – collectively known as “xhaul” – that will enable these new use cases and applications economically and at scale.

In this special, multi-sponsored Light Reading webinar, top 5G experts from Ericsson, Fujitsu, Juniper, and VIAVI Solutions will discuss exactly what operators need to do to architect, build/upgrade, and maintain their xhaul transport networks to support massive 5G deployments – including the roles of fiber, DWDM, microwave, switching/routing, and network testing.

Topics addressed in the webinar will include:

  • Operator bandwidth requirements in fronthaul, midhaul, and backhaul segments and the impacts on the transport network
  • Why and how should operators implement network slicing in their transport networks?
  • Transport and synchronization SLAs and network testing methods
  • WDM-based fronthaul versus Ethernet-based fronthaul
  • The impact of open operation in the RAN via the ORAN Alliance
