More than just the next-generation wireless technology, 5G seeks to serve as an enabler for a broad range of applications and markets. The vision is the ubiquitous capability to provide every connected human, device, and system a much faster and more reliable wireless experience. These are lofty goals, to be sure, ideas that tend to
Meeting the stringent performance and service quality requirements of the 5G network is dependent on timing and synchronization technology from RAN to core. These requirements, especially in regards to latency, have driven some Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to lease dark fiber facilities and build their own transport network. But MNOs that lease dark fiber only
Service providers are rapidly transforming their networks to deliver competitive and affordable 5G services, and cell site densification is one of the key factors in the eventual success of 5G. But deploying fiber and then maximizing bandwidth capacity to so many cell sites can be an expensive proposition. Compared to active WDM-based offerings, Ethernet-based mobile

With the promise of massively increased speed and capacity, there is a lot riding on the success of next-generation 5G technology. To be more accurate, one might say there is a lot riding on the 5G transport network specifically, given the critical role that transport will play in enabling high-bandwidth, ultra-reliable and ultra-low latency applications
To deliver on the promise of 5G, this next-generation technology will enable multiple new service streams virtualized through a common infrastructure. With all the different use cases for 5G, these services will have diverse performance requirements, which adds to the challenges of delivering them in an efficient way. To overcome these challenges, tomorrow’s networks will
With the start of 2019, the era of 5G is officially here… or is it? Are you ready? While a few early market leaders are already hyping 5G services, most service providers are still making plans. And as the build-out begins, the reality of deploying complex new architectures is introducing a variety of challenges. Due
Part two in a blog series about how Fujitsu is bringing the 5G vision to life As communications service providers (CSPs) prepare to deploy 5G, a number of factors will need to be considered as they plan their radio access network (RAN) architecture. An important aspect of this planning is an understanding of the 5G
Part one in a blog series about how Fujitsu is bringing the 5G vision to life On the road to 5G, there are a number of different paths that communications service providers (CSPs) can choose. This blog is the first in a series about our vision for the 5G RAN, and how Fujitsu is working
Network operators face seemingly conflicting challenges. They must maximize network assets, reduce costs, and introduce new revenue-generating services—all while maintaining existing legacy services. This may seem like an impossible combination to achieve, but just four key capabilities provide the right ingredients to reconcile apparently conflicting needs and profitably address these big business challenges: Transport legacy
The tried and true distributed radio access network (RAN) is the standard in mobile architectures. Significant improvements in performance—and reductions in capex and opex—would be required for service providers to consider making substantial changes. But these are no ordinary times. The exploding popularity of digital video and social networking are driving wireless traffic relentlessly higher.
