Providing enough fibre and backhaul is an essential building block in the drive to densify the mobile network. Whether this is leveraging existing assets through dark fibre, spectrum or network management, what are the best ways to support scalable, hyper-dense networks?
Anthony Magee and the panel will discuss the importance of transport networks in underpinning the roll out of small cells and 5G networks. Considerations will include transport requirements of small cells and macrocells, placement of functions to aid in scalability and practical steps to help build a hyper-dense HetNet.
