Date: Tue, Dec 15th, 2020
Time: 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM


5G wireless networks and fiber access networks complement each other, together offering a more cohesive internet experience than either could alone. Without 5G, fiber would lack mobility. Without fiber, the revolutionary goals of 5G would be impossible. In this session, we will talk how new fiber technologies and approaches are the enablers of 5G experiences everywhere: while on the go and while at home. We will give an overview of industry innovations beyond 10G PON, Fixed-Wireless Access and virtualization that will enable converged networks to connect more people everywhere in quickest and simplest way.
