5G Architectures and Service Considerations

Tuesday, 10 March 12:15 - 13:15
Theater III

Session Description

5G is all the rage but there are definitely things to consider when architecting mobile networks for 5G URLLC and 1ms latency requirements. These will drive more applications than just high bandwidth internet access and video content streaming. This discussion addresses distributed RAN versus centralized RAN versus cloud RAN versus full cloud BTS. There are many trade offs versus benefits and attendees will walk away knowing the complexity of the challenges to mobile service providers.
