The 5th generation of mobile communication will give rise to opportunities for higher QoS high-bandwidth applications. It will add new low-latency applications and services as well as massive connections of industrial and commercial devices.
As a consequence, a new higher performance computing and wireline network infrastructure is needed to enable 5G wireless communication and the associated services. Research, development and manufacturing need to be done on a tight timeline and a competitive cost envelope without compromising on quality.
This presentation will cover the state of the industry and future trends all the way from high-speed computing, 400G/800G data center networking to terabit metro/long-distance networks and the 5G wireline fronthaul infrastructure.
