Getting the Right 5G Transport Technology Mix

28/10/2020, 8:00am PDT | 11:00am ET

As 5G drives disaggregation of the RAN, it is vital that operators understand the new options that will emerge for their transport networks.

Key Topics for Discussion

  • Migrating to 5G X-haul architecture for Stand-alone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA) deployments: requirements, challenges, and roadmaps
  • Building a transport solutions toolkit that maximizes performance while lowering operation expense
  • Evaluating Open RAN initiatives and potential impacts on transport
  • How do network-based timing/synch solutions support packet transport networks?

What you will learn:

Attend this webinar to learn how optical, Ethernet, and routing technologies are evolving to support 5G. Understand how transport performance and disaggregation can complement network architectures. What does Open RAN mean for Open Transport networking, and what role does software automation play? How can disaggregated routing be used to support network slicing, scale, and automation? Can Layer 0-3 software functions run on white boxes? If so, what does this do for service flexibility, collaboration, and innovation? Join us as we discuss how to optimize the 5G transport technology mix.

Who should attend:

Mobile SPs, fixed-line SPs, cell tower operators, equipment vendors, chip and component vendors, T&M vendors, telecom financial community, and industry press.
