5G is all about delivering all the bandwidth that customers want for all their information needs. 5G will open the avenues towards many possibilities which will lead to explosion of information traffic be it voice, data or video. This flood of data traffic will require major expansion of transmission capacity . Legacy networks which are copper infrastructures have been used from a long time, but it suffers from limitations like low data rates, poor performance, and high maintenance costs. The need for a low-cost transmission medium with high bandwidth capabilities for handling vast amounts of information is paramount. Fibre optics, the most scalable, secure, with its high-speed data transmission capability and infinite bandwidth benefit has proven to be the solution. 5G and Fibre optics complement each other as they together can offer an unmatched customer experience.
To meet the surging data demand that inflows now and in the future, deploying Fibre is the topmost priority of Communication Service providers. They are preparing themselves to leverage the emerging 5G technology by rolling out Fibre faster than ever before. They are collaborating with System Integrators to deal with ever-increasing complexity in deploying a Fibre network. System integrators bring the right skills, tools, accelerators, and expertise and accelerate the Fibre deployment journey of Communication Service Providers.
The blog takes a look at the drivers which are pushing Communication Service Providers to transform their legacy networks to Fiber-based networks and some of the key steps that need to be considered while rolling out Fibre based network.
