VIDEOS: Broadband Forum: What do fixed networks have to do with 5G rollouts, part 1 and 2


The fine folk at the Broadband Forum recently held a second webinar following up on their first, with the theme of the second being "5G Transport – the foundation of the network". Here's where to watch both webinars.

Back in May, iTWire covered news of the Broadband Forum's upcoming webinar series asking what fixed networks have to do with 5G rollouts, with the article below showing where to freely watch both part 1 and part 2 of this very recent webinar series

Then, last month, the Broadband Forum advised that a second, part 2 webinar would be available, which looked at "5G Transport - the foundation of the network".

The pitch for watching the free webinar started off by noting that "opening up access to 5G will not be as simple as ‘turning on a tap'", and that "decades of work around networks and how they are evolving has led to a common understanding about the importance of robust and efficient transport networks".

The Forum stated "this need has never been greater as 5G begins to emerge. As innovative new services continue to be launched, reliable transport networks will become even more crucial, as operators and equipment manufacturers begin to harness the new speeds".

The Broadband Forum advised last month that the second instalment of its 5G webinar series would be called:‘5G: What’s fixed got to do with it: Transport the Foundation of the 5G Network’.

In addition to providing insight into recent developments around 5G transport networks, the webinar considered the requirements needed to support 5G fronthaul and backhaul, and featured the following speakers: David Sinicrope, vice-president, Broadband Forum; director Transport Standards, Ericsson; and Andrew Malis, distinguished engineer, Huawei, Broadband Forum Distinguished Fellow.

So, to watch both part one and part two of this webinar series, just click here to go to the Broadband Forum's page on 5G fixed mobile convergence and 5G transport.

Once there, scroll down until you see the section entitled "5G: "What's fixed go to to with it" and to the right of that are two green screenshots (that look exactly like the ones in the image at the top of this article), containing both webinars for your enjoyment, streaming via Vimeo, at both approximately an hour long each.
