5G Rubik's Cube This is an important effort. As noted in our new Heavy Reading report, Cable's 5G Backhaul & Small Cell Prospects and Challenges, the conundrum for 5G backhaul is that fiber is the transport of choice for meeting 5G latency and other requirements, but HFC is better suited to power 5G small cells. If the latency equation can be resolved using HFC and DOCSIS 3.1, cable's existing plant can be leveraged to meet 5G small cell requirements.
