Fiber backhauls the traffic from the cell site back to the rest of the mobile network. But the fiber is critical to other mobile infrastructure and extends the reach of other, high revenue services:

  • Fiber is needed to support Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC)
  • Cloud RAN requires reliable fiber connectivity
  • 5G deployment requires more small cells, massive MIMO and higher bandwidth radios, all of which also increase the need for additional fiber connections
  • Fiber to the edge extends the reach and lowers the cost of Enterprise data services

This webinar will explore the opportunities for fiber and how new fiber networks support the key mobile network technologies: MEC; cloud RAN; 5G and digital infrastructure.
