White Paper: The path to 5G requires a strong optical network

From C‐RAN to Cloud‐RAN

This white paper reviews the latest trends in the radio access networks (RANs) of mobile networks, including the evolution to Cloud‐RAN and virtualised architectures.

Optical links between the radio head and the BBU will be crucial to the performance of the C-RAN deployed in LTE‑Advanced Pro and 5G deployments.

This white paper looks at the technical requirements of fronthaul architecture splits in the Cloud- RAN and assesses optical connection options. It then considers how to test and verify the performance of optical links in the network.

If you need to understand more about C-RAN architecture options, the design of fronthaul and CPRI requirements – this free white paper will be a must-have resource.
