xHaul Transport Networks will Dictate the Success of 5G Networks

The only part of content’s journey over the mobile network that’s wireless is from your smartphone to a cell site radio. The rest of the journey from the cell site radio to data centers—where accessed content is hosted—is over a fixed packet-optical wireline network. Join us to understand why the xHaul (fronthaul, midhaul, backhaul) transport network will dictate 5G’s end-to-end success.
