The promise of 5G services is huge. Massively scalable, low-latency enabled applications will open up new ecosystems, business models and creativity across enterprise and residential markets. Sounds great, right?

At the same time, 5G will require mobile networks to increase availability, reliability and security to new heights that aren’t entirely predictable as the network surface grows exponentially and new services grow organically. Is your network a platform for new service innovation and will it enable your business to grow agilely in unforeseen directions as 5G technology opens new frontiers? Now is the time for network operators to evolve their transport networks in advance of mass 5G rollouts. Operators have many decisions to make, but what is the best path forward?

Join this Light Reading webinar to learn about the technical aspects of the 5G transport network, laying the foundation for deeper dives on the evolution of your transport architecture.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to facilitate the convergence of mobile and wireline services onto a single transport network
  • How to enable new 5G services with heightened performance/enterprise-grade expectations
  • How to increase service innovation and velocity
  • How to lower TCO
