Gabriel Brown, Principal Analyst – Mobile Networks and 5G, Heavy Reading

Joe Mocerino, Principal Solutions Architect, Packet Optical Networking, Fujitsu Network Communications

Mobile network operators preparing for rapid, near-term deployment of 5G RAN are designing network architectures that will scale to device and traffic densities and performance demands that are far beyond what is commonplace in LTE networks today. This is critical preparation for the 5G super-cycle that will enable operators to extend into diverse new service-types and markets over the next ten years and beyond.

An essential part of the new architecture is the transport network that provides connectivity between radio sites, edge data centers and cloud service providers. This webinar investigates this new transport architecture and the role that packet-based connectivity fabrics play in the performance of the 5G RAN and on revenue-generating end-user services.

Key areas of discussion will be:

  • New architectures for 5G transport using eCPRI and TSN
  • Open xHaul with open standards
  • Automation to optimize the network
  • Upcoming 5G services
