5G Backhaul - Challenges and New Architectures

The next-gen mobile network will require next-gen backhaul architecture. How do the changing demands on the network define the characteristics of 5G? How does this impact architectural decisions regarding backhaul? The granularity of services, applications and devices will drive the mobile network beyond human control, so where do operators need to deploy intelligence and automation to ensure that backhaul can accommodate this? This webinar looks ahead to the near-future of the mobile network and the evolution of 5G transport solutions.
