Webinar: Getting the right 5G transport technology mix

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

Late last year, Omdia hosted a webinar looking at how optical, Ethernet, and routing technologies are evolving to support 5G. The participants included:

  • Richard Webb, Director, Research and Analysis, Service Provider Technology, Omdia
  • Daniel Gonzalez, Business Development Manager, Anritsu
  • Joseph Mocerino, Principal Solutions Architect, Optical Networking, Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc.
  • Tim Doiron, Sr. Director, Solution Marketing, Infinera
  • Allen Tatara, Senior Manager, Webinar Events, Omdia (Moderator)

The following were key topics of 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?
  • Answers to audience questions during live Q&A

I liked these slides from Anritsu.

The video of the webinar is embedded below. You can register to download the slides, whitepapers, etc., here.

High-level Architecture Introduction of Mobile Cellular Networks from 2G to 5G

Here is an old tutorial explaining high level mobile network architecture, starting from GSM and then looking at GPRS, UMTS, LTE & 5G.

5G Connectivity will Enable New Use Cases

While we have been discussing advanced 5G use cases for years, it is only now, with the Standalone 5G (5G SA) that it is going to become possible to have many of these in practice. Of course they will take time to mature and be popular with the end users. As a part of our Free 5G Training initiative , we made a short video that will provide you with ideas and motivation for why 5G could do a lot more than just faster speeds. The video is embedded below. In addition, Parallel Wireless, one of the companies I consult for, did a webinar on 5G Use Cases which is available here .

Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and the Path to 5G Wireless Wireline Convergence (WWC)

I have covered Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) on The 3G4G Blog here and looked at automated HetNet design which included FWA links here . I have also covered Wireline Wireless Convergence (WWC) as part of 5G and Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) posts. The links to the posts are available at the end. Back in December, Juniper took part in a Light Reading webinar which is being shared as part of this post. With revenues flat and traffic continuing to explode, the unsustainable state of network economics needs another disruption. The 5G deployment cycle offers an insertion opportunity for new converged architectures. Wireless offload solutions can re-route the traffic of data-hogging mobile subscribers over wireline cores built for bandwidth and performance rather than mobile cores (EPC) primarily designed for mobility and portability. The 5G Network Architecture in 3GPP Release-16 allows the convergence of fixed and wireless networks. This also allows many new opportunities as can be se
