5G-Crosshaul – the fusion of Fronthaul and Backhaul in 5G! @MWC 2017

28 February 2017 @ 11:00 - 12:00 CET

5G-Crosshaul is organising a panel at MWC 2017 on Tuesday 28 February, 2017  from 11:00 to 12:00 Hall 7 Stand 7C61.

Looking at various research and standardisation forums leading the development of 5G, such as 5G PPP, NGMN, 3GPPP, IEEE, ITU, IETF, ETSI, etc., all seem to align on the vision that the fronthaul and backhaul will converge or fuse in 5G into what is now popularly refreed to as Crosshaul or Xhaul. So what requirements are driving quch a fusion in 5G? Which enabling technologies could make it happen? Where are ther remaining gaps and what is the industry doing to make ot happen? And when are we going to see it?

Featuring leading experts in the industry, this panel aims at discussing the Crosshaul (Xhaul) topic from the various angles of requirements, architecture, enabling tehcnologies, standardization, and market development.

The panel will be moderated by Alan Carlton, Vice-President of International Labs at InterDigital (UK). Panelists include: Antonella Sanguineti (Ericsson), Arturo Azcorra (5TONIC), Diego Lopez (Telefonica), Li Fung Chang (Taiwan’s 5G-Office), and Theodore Sizer (Nokia).
