5G is more than just wireless technologies. It’s about an end-to-end ecosystem that affects the wireline networks that will connect geographically separated cell sites.
Think about it, it’s not just people connecting to people, data, and video. Machines have jumped in the connectivity game too, with 18 billion things projected to be interconnected by 2022*.
Join Ciena’s Brian Lavallee, Senior Director of Portfolio Solutions, for a discussion on how to prepare your wireline network for the impending impact of 5G. You’ll learn:
- 4G to 5G migration and how you can prepare now
- What is network slicing, and why you’ll need it
- Business opportunities arising from 5G
5G will affect all parts of the network. For you to be successful, you’ll need more than just a new RAN, you’ll also need fiber—and lots of it.
Get yours ready. Register Now.
