5G-Crosshaul general view and innovations

With the arrival of 5G, mobile network operators are facing a new set of challenges when designing their network topology. Centralized RAN (C-RAN) emerges as a requisite to develop efficiently the new 5G networks, and therefore operators are trying to achieve financial efficiency, engineering efficiency, and user satisfaction efficiency. To accomplish all of them, a new fronthaul and backhaul integration is required and thus the creation of the 5G Crosshaul initiative.

This first episode on 5GCrosshaul will offer a general overview of the 5GCrosshaul architecture, its motivations, building blocks as well as the new applications that operators will be able to develop on this new network architecture. Also, three trials performed formed in Berlin, Barcelona, Taiwan and Madrid and their results and conclusions will be exposed during this episode.

This introductory episode will offer the first view on 5GCrosshaul and builds the foundation for the next six episode
