5G and Mobile Backhaul

With the introduction of 5G, Mobile Network Operators have an opportunity to become Universal Service Providers, offering a complete range of telecom services. This requires a service-aware transport network that connects the 5G New Radio (NR) with agile mobile core functionality. Ribbon's solutions are able to deliver 5G connectivity dynamically, with the assured, deterministic behavior required to make 5G services a reality.

Why Ribbon?

Global Data 5G Transport Competitive Landscape Assessment

5G networks require a new breed of transport technologies, providing high transport capacity, and adhering to stringent timing, latency and synchronization criteria. Compared to legacy technologies, 5G transport is also more diverse and flexible.

What Changes Will 5G Bring?

5G is expected to be the first time in which the number of static devices will exceed the number of mobile users, and the difference will be massive. If this prediction is true, there is a serious need to re-think the way networks are designed, architected, managed, and optimized. In this webinar ECI joins forces with Viavi Solutions, BT Technology and IHS Markit to discuss what aspects of current network architecture need to change to fulfill the promise of 5G.

Is Your Network Ready for 5G?

Why Utilities Need HD Video

With 5G, for the first time, the connectivity fabric has the potential to create differentiation for network operators. Achieving this differentiation to its full potential will require many changes in network architecture. But what aspects of the network need to change and how?

Understand the Challenges of Rolling Out a 5G Network

Today’s 5G rollout is focused on providing broadband services; with enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) provided to mobile devices and fixed wireless access (FWA) to homes with poor fixed access connectivity. As mobile networks operators move from initial deployments to mass country-wide coverage, with new services, they will need to invest heavily on new 5G infrastructure. But where are they with the business case?

With 5G, for the first time, the connectivity fabric has the potential to create differentiation for network operators. Enabling them for the first time to transform from CSPs to DSPs (Digital Service Providers). Achieving this differentiation will require many changes in network architecture.

Network Slicing Gives You the Agility You Need

network-slice-cloud

While the term “network slicing” typically brings up an association with 5G technology and services, they are not directly related. Network slicing simply is the ability for to carve out multiple virtual networks, with significantly different performance characteristics, from a common physical infrastructure. Here’s what you need to know about network slicing technologies:
