2019: Telecom’s Tipping Point
Promise of 5G in jeopardy without fiber fronthaul investment

The telecommunications industry has reached a tipping point. Network densification is a requirement for increased and more ubiquitous connectivity. Up to this point, the telecommunications industry has been able to utilize existing fiber and build new fiber in an ad hoc, as needed, manner. This is no longer enough as the demand for small cells and DAS is increasing exponentially in the race to 5G. There’s simply not enough fiber to support 5G and network densification. Whether or not we, the telecommunications industry, deploy 5G successfully largely rests in the ability to lay enough fiber fronthaul — the fiber that connects homes, businesses, and small cell sites.

To help you navigate this challenge, we interviewed three experts and veteran telecommunications leaders to better understand what it will take to succeed and deploy the fiber necessary for network densification and optimization.
