Passive Optical Network for 5G Fronthaul

Passive Optical Network for 5G Fronthaul

2 June 2020, 10:00 - 11:30

This webinar will first introduce the passive optical network (PON) technologies and the latest standards effort. It will focus on the PON applications as 5G fronthaul transport network. Bandwidth and latency are analyzed as the two key requirements of 5G fronthaul. Various mappings between 5G network CU/DU/RU to PON are discussed to meet the requirements. Recent industry test and trial results will be reported.
