What you need to know about 5G wireless backhaul

While 5G is only slated to be launched and commercially deployed in 2020, early trials are anticipated to start as early as 2018. Smart operators and providers are learning all they can about 5G already today. A key requirement to meet 5G service demands is a flexible wireless backhaul infrastructure which meets more stringent performance, reliability, and operational efficiency targets.

Here is what we already know about 5G: 

  • More capacity per device – ultra-high capacity per end-device
  • New types of devices – the mass introduction of IoT (Internet of Things) and M2M (Machine to Machine) services 
  • More devices – the exponential growth in the number of “standard” devices
  • New services – Services such as augmented reality, tactile Internet applications, mobile XaaS, and virtual reality will enrich the service offerings provided by both mobile operators and over-the-top (OTT) service providers 

But what are the 5G wireless backhaul challenges you should be aware of?

How can you cope with these challenges easily? 

Ceragon Networks is developing robust technologies to meet the need for up to 100 times higher capacity at cell sites, at least five times denser cell-site grids, with large scale street-level deployments, network virtualization and optimization, as well as support for mission critical applications.
