Evolution of Transport for 5G

4G Transport Options Today

Ethernet Based Backhaul

4G transport options are tied to base station functionality and operator’s deployment scenarios. Traditional base stations are decentralized and have relatively low capacity and latency requirements. Although there are many scenarios were traditional base stations are desirable, operators are looking at ways to reduce costs and optimize performance. As the RAN is evolving to become greener and more profitable in many cases Ethernet alone does not meet RAN evolution. Continue reading
