"Mobile operators understand that existing transport networks will not be able to cope with the future growth in traffic and must look to new architectures such as x-haul topologies."

Cloud-RAN will deliver cost reductions and capacity improvements to mobile operators. The right transport network will be critical to cloud-RAN architecture and bares important considerations; mobile network operators (MNOs) must develop a strategy that delivers the right balance between performance and cost across fronthaul, midhaul and backhaul networks.

This report provides:

  • an analysis of the mobile network considerations for mobile operators in order to meet the growing mobile data traffic challenge
  • an analysis of the next-generation x-haul transport network needed by mobile operators
  • a forecast of fronthaul interface technology and fibre technology growth
  • key recommendations for the industry.
