Sterling Perrin, Principal Analyst – Optical Networking & Transport, Heavy Reading

Jim Guillet, Sr Director, Portfolio Marketing, Marketing & Corporate Affairs, Nokia

Every generation of mobile technology delivers new capabilities and improves network performance. 5G, however, is on a different scale altogether. Opportunities for growth go way beyond connectivity and mobile broadband, well into new areas such as vertical sectors and industrial applications.

Mobile transport is a fundamental building block for the 5G future and getting the architecture right is critical to deliver the ubiquitous services and flawless experience customers expect.

In this webinar, we outline some key challenges and opportunities of defining and delivering transport in the 5G era. We also explain how a comprehensive, end-to-end approach can address each provider's unique set of network and service requirements with an optimal mix of transport technologies and options that are right for them.

The specific topics would include:

  • Multiservice interconnectivity of the distributed core and network slices
  • Definitions and roles of fronthaul, midhaul and backhaul
  • Application of software-defined networking (SDN) as RAN and core functions migrate to cloud architectures.
