The Role of Microwave for 5G Backhaul


Came across this interesting webinar by IHS Markit Technology on 'The role of next gen microwave in the 5G era' with Huawei. The video of that is embedded below. The main speakers include Richard Webb, Research Director, Mobile Backhaul and Small Cells, IHS Markit and Renato Lombardi, Huawei Fellow and Head of Italy Research Center, Huawei Technologies

The evolution of 5G places new demands on the backhaul/fronthaul network and drives technology decisions for operators. As you can see the picture above, Microwave is still expected to play a huge role in case of 5G backhaul.


The webinar explores the challenges for the next generation of transport network in terms of architecture, key performance metrics, and technology solutions as operators seek to deliver more granular services and latency- and bandwidth-sensitive applications, and to support new mobile devices. In particular, it looks at the capabilities of microwave as part of the changing backhaul network as operators roll out enhanced mobile broadband 5G services, plus consider the powerful possibilities delivered by network automation in shaping the future for 5G transport solutions.


Topics discussed in the webinar
- Key challenges and performance criteria for the 5G transport network
- Microwave evolution roadmap for 5G backhaul
- Selecting the right technology mix for the 5G transport network
- The role of network automation in supporting the 5G transport network
- Answers to audience questions during live Q&A

Fixed Wireless Acess (FWA): A fantastic alternative to home broadband

Getting broadband to your house or place of work is always a nightmare. If you own the place, then it's okay for holes to be drilled in the walls, etc. For a lot of people renting accommodation or premises, they may not have an option to get fiber or wired broadband of their choice. In addition, the ISPs have long term contracts and strict clauses that people end up paying a lot more than they though they will.
Almost three months, 11 Openreach engineers (one drilled through the new fibre cable), a broken window, no show appointments and we finally have fibre-to-home broadband! Woo. #disappointment#breathholdingchampions@OpenreachHelp@bt_ukpic.twitter.com/z0Dguoh52e — BAble (@benwablett) August 29, 2019
In such scenarios Fixed Wireless is a fantastic alternative to a wired alternative. While traditional fixed wireless requires an external antenna for reliable connectivity and higher throughput, many new CPEs (Customer Premises Equipments) are being built with high gain sensitive …
