The 5G Fronthaul Handbook

whitePaper | August 1, 2021

Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low latency communications, and massive machine-type communication (mMTC) are well understood and highly anticipated 5G use cases. The big challenge for network operators is how to support these use cases, and more, on the same network. Much of the buzz to date has centered on 5G-NR (new radio), virtualized core, and mm-Wave spectrum. Receiving far less attention, but equally important as the new radio interface, is the evolution of the transport network that connects 5G nodes to enable the key 5G use cases—simultaneously.

Multi-Vendor 5G Core Networks

whitePaper | July 26, 2021

5G standalone (SA) operation, using a new core network, is foundational to mobile operators seeking to offer advanced 5G services with a low cost of production. Over the next two to three years, operators in all global regions will design, deploy, and scale 5G core networks on software-defined infrastructure. By April 2021, eight operators had already launched SA, according to the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), and a further 36 have firm plans to launch in the near term. There is now a good supply of devices that support SA mode, including the iPhone 12 after the latest iOS update.
