FTTx: C-RAN, Fronthaul and Remote Radio Heads (RCR Wireless)

Watch Now
Length: 60 mins.


Fiber will enable next-generation networks, smart cities and the internet of things. Fiber to the tower has already separated radio heads and antennas from base station equipment, and now that same architecture is being leveraged for centralized radio access networks, or C-RAN. Telcos with significant fiber assets are well positioned, and are working with public and private sector partners to bring the benefits of fiber networks to as many people as possible. As operators explore cost-efficient ways to create and manage fiber-based networks, they are developing best practices that can benefit the telecom and wireless industries.
