Accelerating Small Cell Densification Using Next-Gen PON Cost and Scale Advantages

Track: Engineering

Session Number: 58
Date: Tue, Jun 4th, 2019
Time: 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM

Description:

In order to realize the full vision of 5G, service providers will need to connect hundreds of thousands of 5G small cells. As the industry compares the benefits of the different functional split options that next-gen RAN architectures could take, next-gen PON fiber solutions are quickly maturing, creating a compelling business case for using fiber networks to connect these 5G small cells. Explore the different 5G architectures from both a spectrum and radio split perspective to show which fiber access technologies are best suited for the various deployment scenarios.
Session Type: Breakout Session

Learning Objective #1: Attendees will explore the different 5G architectures from both a spectrum and radio split perspective to show which fiber access technologies are best suited for the various deployment scenarios.
Learning Objective #2: Attendees will learn which RAN model, in concert with converged fiber initiatives, could become an economic game changer and alter the future of enhanced 5G services.
Intended Audience Level: Essentials, Intermediate, Advanced
Stage of fiber deployment: Planning/early stage, Performing, Prime, Legacy
