Enabling Technologies for Optical Transport and Access Networks in the 5G Era

Enabling Technologies for Optical Transport and Access Networks in the 5G Era

4 August 2020, 9:00 - 10:30

Optical networks are supporting a wide range of communication services including residential services, enterprise services, and mobile services. The 5th-generation (5G) wireless brings to optical networking new requirements such as high bandwidth, low latency, accurate synchronization, and the ability to perform network slicing and autonomous operation etc. All these requirements are being addressed by the so-called 5G-oriented optical networks. This OSA webinar aims to highlight the dramatic technological advances in optical transport and access networks over the last few years and provide new perspectives on what to expect in the 5G era.
