About the Webinar

Emerging 5G services place stringent requirements on optical and transport networks. Much higher bandwidth and ultra-reliable and low latency are examples of these requirements that drive a set of new technologies and architectures in backhaul, fronthaul and the new midhaul networks. Next generation passive optical networks (NG-PON), Timing Sensitive Networks (TSN), Radio over Ethernet (RoE), and enhanced Common Public Radio Interface (eCPRI) represent some of these key emerging technologies. The presentation starts with a short introduction of the 5G services and their network requirements, and focuses on describing the main features and benefits of the new technologies.
