Oulu, Finland, 12 June @ 9:00-12:30: Room IT116
5G-Crosshaul co-organised a Workshop at EuCNC: New x-haul solutions for the 5G transport challenge
Jörg-Peter Elbers (ADVA, Germany)
Eckhard Grass (IHP, Germany)
Antonio de la Oliva (Univ.Carlos III de Madrid, Spain)
Motivation and Background
Future Radio Access Networks (RAN) call for transport networks with unprecedented flexibility and performance. Stringent requirements on bandwidth, latency, and timing as well as the mandatory support of heterogeneous technologies and different functional splits create the necessity for next-generation x-haul solutions. The workshop will discuss 5G transport challenges and new solutions developed within the Horizon2020 projects iCirrus, 5G-Crosshaul and 5G-XHaul.
