CANCELLED - Preparing the Transport Network for 5G

Theater II

Session Sponsored and Organized by Juniper Networks


Session Description
The promise of 5G is largely based on how the new services it offers will enable providers to deliver: enhanced mobile broadband, augmented reality, connected vehicle, industrial IoT, the software-defined enterprise, and much more. But this diverse set of services will also place diverse requirements on the network, including x-haul optics and timing & sync. In order for 5G to be profitable, service providers must deliver efficient, end-to-end network slicing – without it, 5G becomes an operational quagmire. Key technologies include automation, orchestration, transport protocols, edge clouds, wireless-wireline convergence (WWC), and threat-aware infrastructure will be addressed.
