5G in MENA Featured

Source: FTTH Council MENA

5th generation mobile networks with their new New Radio (NR) technology are drawing near with initial rollout anticipated by 2020. Trials are taking place all around the world, even though the standardization of 5G technology is still to be finalized.

The Technology and Training Committee has worked on this paper to discuss 5G, its applications and benefits, not only in general, but also specifically for the MENA region. The associated network architecture is described, as well as different ways of realizing this and considerations that help ensure 5G can be used to its fullest potential.

Importantly, we will also explain the relationship between next-generation wireless technologies and why there can be no successful rollout, and why 5G can’t reach its full potential, without a fibre-optic backbone. This document will raise the following points:

  1. Why 5G?
  2. Synergies between Fibre and 5G
  3. The cost of 5G deployment vs. FTTH deployment
  4. 5G trends and investments in MENA region
