Winning the 5G Race: Can Fixed Wireless be the “X” Factor?
Date: Thursday, September 6, 2018
Time: 12:00 pm New York / 5:00 pm London
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.

The XGS-PON platform Frontier selected from Nokia is upgradable to 25-Gig PON 'with basically an optics change,' says Scott Mispagel, Frontier's SVP of national architecture and engineering.
Frontier has hooked up with Nokia to connect about 100,000 homes to XGS-PON technology amid a grander plan to have FTTP deployed to 10 million locations by the end of 2025.
AT&T CEO John Stankey has challenged his execs to explore what it would take to expand AT&T's plan to build FTTP to 30 million locations by 2025. 'Execution and performance' is all that stands in the way, he says.
SCTE, the cable industry's standards-setting organization, has approved standards for enclosures and modules for Generic Access Platform (GAP) nodes designed to support DOCSIS, PON and wireless access technologies.
Financial support for winning bids from more than a dozen smaller broadband players will be disbursed in 120 monthly payments, starting at the end of this month.
