PMC Presents on Mobile Fronthaul Solutions for 4G and 5G Networks at Transport Networks Conference


PMC-Sierra (News - Alert), Inc. (PMC®) (Nasdaq:PMCS), the semiconductor and software solutions innovator transforming networks that connect, move and store big data, will speak at the International Wireless Industry Consortium Interactive Technical Workshop, Evolving Transport Networks, Opportunities and Challenges for Wireless Fronthaul/Backhaul, January 12-14, 2016, at the Double Tree by Hilton in San Jose, California.

On January, 14, 2016, at 1 PM local time, Scott Wakelin, senior product line manager for PMC's Communications Business Unit, will present "Mobile Fronthaul: Solutions for 4G and 5G Networks." His presentation will include a detailed overview of:

  • Industry trends in mobile Radio Access Networks (RAN), including the evolution of CPRI Rates, centralized baseband processing, and the need for mobile fronthaul networks; and
  • Critical requirements of mobile fronthaul networks; and
  • Fronthaul network technology alternatives with a specific focus on the benefits of OTN networks for scalable, carrier-grade CPRI fronthaul.

The workshop brings together first-hand knowledge experts to discuss the challenges operators are facing as they migrate to LTE (News - Alert)-A and 5G networks. The explosion of fixed and wireless applications including streaming video, downloadand uploading social media, access to cloud data, VoIP, VoLTE, and E911 for mobile devices presents new transport network challenges related to performance and latency. These challenges are compounded in the wireless "last mile." Future radio access networks are facing a significant transition from dedicated point to point connections to Ethernet-based switched networks. With the emergence of fronthaul, new ways of dividing the functional responsibilities of radio processing to meet the future network demands is required. Is the operation of two separate network domains for both fronthaul and backhaul scalable for future 5G networks? Will converged fronthaul and backhaul networking architectures enable migration to future virtual and/or centralized 5G mobile networks?
