New way to verify 5G fronthaul OSP fiber networks

This webinar details a new, comprehensive approach to validating 5G fronthaul outside plant (OSP) optical networks. The webinar is structured in three parts, each lasting around 10 minutes.

Part 1: Technology overview and evolution of 5G fronthaul network

The introduction will provide a technical overview of technologies presently deployed and a glimpse into upcoming trends and their impact on the fronthaul architecture.

Part 2: Construction and activation using portable test equipment

Review of real-life examples and field results to explain what should be done during construction, installation, and activation phases of the fronthaul fiber-optic network to guarantee optimal quality and stability of 5G services.

Part 3: Burn-in and monitoring of fronthaul fiber

This part explores centralized fiber monitoring which helps to capture degradations of the optical fiber over time and correlates issues with environmental conditions. Distinguishing whether the detected problem is at the physical layer or at an upper layer is key to sending the right person at the right time to the right place. The webinar will show the need for centralized fiber monitoring as an inherent part of the 5G deployment structure through real-life examples and scenarios.

Key takeaways:

  • Evolution from CPRI to 25G eCPRI and from RAN to C/D-RAN to O-RAN
  • Construction and activation portable test solutions (optical multimeters, OTDR/iOLM and fiber inspection)
  • Centralized fiber monitoring solutions (OTDR-based remote test units, Grafana and API-based integrations)
