Fixed and Mobile networks are evolving in the same direction towards better coverage and higher speeds. 5G will unlock Gigabit speeds and massive connectivity and transform our lives in ways only limited by our imagination. Speed of light is not fast enough to support 5G latency requirements, therefore, we will have to redesign the network to support 5G use cases.

The presentation will de-mystify 5G for Rural Operators and share the latest news on 5G developments and deployments.

The audience will learn about the evolution of RAN and CORE to support 5G and the impact of 5G on Fiber networks. A four-minute video will be shown to demonstrate industrial use case for 5G and the significance of latency in the future 5G network.

Topics Covered

  • The overall sectrum and technology tools that can be used to deploy FWA

  • The potentials cost vs gains of various aspects of an FWA solution, for example: CBRS spectrum, licensed v unlicensed, 2x2 MIMO v. mMIMO

  • Overview of end-to-end standards based FWA solutions
