Ciena’s 5168 Router is purpose-built for 5G networks that converge 4G/5G fronthaul, midhaul, and backhaul (xHaul) networks onto a common, simpler infrastructure. With dense 1/10/25GbE to 100/200GbE aggregation and support for both hard network slicing (FlexEthernet) and soft network slicing (Segment Routing), the 5168 is the ideal platform to simplify and de-risk the unique 4G to 5G journeys of mobile and wholesale operators.
