5G’s Fiber Foundation: The Costs and Opportunities of Convergence

Date : 2019-09-26

Date: 26th September
Time: 10am UK Time
5G networks deployments will offer greatly increased speeds and capacity, but will also require a significant increase of the number of antennas and demand high capacity transport networks.
During this webinar, you will learn why fiber is an essential enabler of 5G transport and how to best cope with the growing requirements for fiber capacity.
For new network builds, the convergence of fixed FTTH and mobile transport networks is a very attractive approach to minimize deployment costs and maximize revenue opportunities. The economic benefits of network convergence will be presented using a recent study conducted by the FTTH Council Europe.
Key topics include:
• Fiber as an enabler for 5G
• Impact of the number of antennas
• Economic benefits of network convergence
