Why Transporting 5G Converged Traffic is Important?
Worldwide, the promise of 5G services seems to be an evolutionary and revolutionary opportunity. 5G has become a must-have element in this digital and remote work era and is so much more than just a wireless upgrade. It evolves existing technologies and introduces new capabilities, like:
- New radio (NR)
- A strong reliance on virtualized functions
- The introduction of network slicing, and Control & User Plane Separation (CUPS)
This white paper outlines how such a converged xHaul transport network can be realized, starting with new requirements it must meet; the new technologies it needs to deploy 5G-capable services; and finally, the design features necessary to cost-effectively build and operate it.
