Build a strong foundation for 5G success
Flexible xHaul delivers agility and performance
5G transport network solutions must not only focus on current demands, but also on expected and potential changes as markets and technologies evolve. Transport networks must be as flexible as possible, addressing any mix of backhaul, midhaul, and fronthaul.
Ciena 5G network solutions offer open, programmable xHaul routers and network lifecycle automation across the RAN, xHaul transport, and core, building a foundation for an agile and seamless 5G evolution towards more open, virtualized, and centralized RAN architectures.
Unparalleled flexibility and efficiency to help future proof your 5G transport network, enabling you to capture the benefits of new C-RAN architectures when you want, where you want, and the way you want.
