5G Transport Networks White Paper: Heavy Reading Operator Survey & Analysis

With the advent of the 5G era, operators are turning their attention to 5G transport networks. This leads to the question—how should 5G networks be developed? Huawei and Heavy Reading jointly released a research report on the subject, conducting research into the following five topics for some major network operators around the world, excluding North America:

  • Operator 5G timelines
  • Fiber and microwave Trends
  • Architecture preferences (C- RAN vs D-RAN)
  • Transport network challenges
  • Technologies and standards
