The race to launch commercial 5G services is on as evidenced by the growing number of trials worldwide. 5G involves a new Radio Access Network (RAN) architecture with 10x to 100X small/microcells, known as 5G densification, requiring multi-Gigabit connectivity (presumed to be Fiber) to support backhaul and front-haul needs. However, in dense urban environments, running fiber to all these new nodes is a very expensive and time-consuming process, and that doesn't account for the one- to two-year timeframes to get local permits for small-cells, delaying 5G rollouts.

Register and join us as Hossam Salib, VP of Cable and Wireless Strategy at ADTRAN, provides an overview of 5G RAN architecture and outlines technology advancements in the sub-6GHz and mmWave fixed wireless solutions. Hossam will also cover innovative fixed wireless technologies that allow rapid deployment of reliable, high-capacity, low-latency networks in dense urban environments, supporting 5G backhaul and enhanced broadband services. Innovations in both fixed access and fixed wireless technologies combined with software-defined access (SD-Access) architectures allow mobile carriers to focus less on 5G network challenges, and focus more on delivering on the promise of a smart, connected world.



Alison Diana, Editor, Broadband World News
Alison Diana always dreamed of being a veterinarian until she saw a documentary of a vet removing an alligator's eye. With a love of English but no desire to be a teacher, Alison had no idea what she would do until she earned a four-year, full-tuition journalism scholarship to the School of Visual Arts and fell in love with feature writing.

An internship at Rolling Stone encouraged Alison to mix her love of music and writing until she answered an ad in a local newspaper for a position at a B2B channel publication. And so her 25-year career covering solution and service providers; technologies from HPC and UC&C to cloud and security, and business began.

Alison spent 10 years at CRN, before launching a successful freelance career writing for publications including InformationWeek, VARBusiness, Redmond Channel Partner, numerous TechTarget sites, and Florida Today. She later rejoined UBM as part of the DeusM team before heading InformationWeek's health IT section. Alison who lives on Florida's Space Coast with her husband, teen daughter, and two spoiled cats became part of the Light Reading team as editor at The New IP. In late May of this year, she was named Ambassador of the New IP Agency, a not-for-profit independent initiative providing information, education, analysis, community services and testing to support and accelerate the development of a global economy based on open, advanced, virtualized IP networks.
