Transformational impact of the 5G network architecture extends right from radio access to the optical metro and core segments. The transport infrastructure is the key to secure the best 5G experience. It is imperative to upgrade to a high-performance and highly reliable end-to-end optical fiber network that cost-effectively fulfils end-user demands. 5G use c ases such as Ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) and Enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) require deterministic real-time latency (end-to-end delay) for services. Each use case presents distinct challenges for 5G transport performance. This paper discusses the nuances of how Tejas Networks is building cutting-edge 5G X-haul products and solutions that enables service providers to develop fast, secure and reliable communications services.
