5G Networks – Wireless and Fiber Backhaul Solutions

As Gigabit-LTE networks and 5G infrastructure trials are being deployed worldwide, the fiber versus wireless dilemma rises once again. Network operators seek back-haul infrastructure that will accommodate the exponential growth of their capacity needs, growing from 10s of Mbps in 3G networks to 100s of Mbps and even a few Gbps in LTE, LTE-Advanced and LTE-Advanced Pro networks and estimated to grow to 10s of Gbps in 5G applications. On the other hand, these backhand solutions also need to be cost-effective to deploy and should provide fast time-to-market for new services and target markets, as networks expand and become denser.

This white paper includes an overview of each technology and describes the factors to consider when selecting the right technology for each network scenario.
