5G and the Transport Network: Operator Strategies
This IDC Perspective outlines the role of the transport network in the 5G era, surveys the solutions available, and explores mobile operators' views and plans with regard to ensuring their transport network can meet the demands that 5G will place upon it.
"The higher data rates and lower latency of 5G will place new demands on the mobile transport network," said John Delaney, Associate VP of Mobility, IDC Europe. "Will operators successfully anticipate these demands? Or will backhaul become a bottleneck again?"
