Fiber deployment proves day after day to be a primary tool for a reliable network, not only in FTTH and FTTX landline networks, or FTTC, but also for the deployment of 5G as a backbone for mobile operators’ BTS backed by SDN.
The massive fiber and 5G deployments will drive IoT and edge computing to address industrial, enterprise and consumer demands driven by vast bandwidth, vast demand for data and an increase in geographic ubiquity.
5G is backed by a large fiber network which can provide extremely high speed connectivity with no latency (or almost, close to a low fraction of a second).
The all new 5G-enabled smartphones will increase the vast demand for data on the mobile network and the back-end of the fiber network will become crucial to ensure the delivery of quality connectivity to the end user.
The network will become smarter and focus on software more, which will improve the quality and latency in addition to the deployment of SDN and software-defined smartphones.
