5G promises connectivity 10 to 100 times faster than 4G networks, with latencies less than 1msec, making real-time applications such as tactile Internet useable over mobile networks for the first time. However, mobile operators will need to deploy ten times as many radio sites, each with highly reliable plug-and-go multi-gigabit connections, to achieve that level of performance.

In this UBB2020 webinar, Heavy Reading's Gabriel Brown and ADTRAN's Ryan McCowan will:

  1. Discuss 5G densification strategies and their network impact
  2. Outline the different requirements for backhaul and fronthaul needed to support 5G densification strategies
  3. Explore next-generation PON-fixed access technologies and software defined networking principles as emerging solutions to accelerate 5G densification
  4. Outline how NG-PON2, the next-generation multi-gigabit fiber technology, supports the x-haul (fronthaul, backhaul and crosshaul applications) requirements of 5G
