PANEL DISCUSSION – Maximising the benefits of Microwave on the road to 5G

 
 

 

The economic and operational values of Microwave for high-capacity backhaul have brought huge benefit to today's mobile networks & services. As the industry starts to gather itself for the drive to 5G, how will Microwave need to change, develop and adapt?

What changes will SDN drive in Microwave architectures – or vice-versa? Cloudification and virtualisation are huge macro network trends: how will Microwave support that evolution, how will Microwave itself be impacted? What prospects does 5G hold for Microwave and Backhaul?
