Demystifying 5G wireless backhaul: realising capacity, density and latency from a regulatory and vendor’s perspective
As the 5G standards solidify, both regulatory authorities and equipment suppliers are moving to ensure that the technical requirements can be realised. This is a careful multilateral conversation between organisations such as ITU, ETS, and ANSI, and the technology manufactureRs such as Aviat Networks. The finite resource of radio spectrum needs to be carefully managed today, with a long-term view of 5G and beyond. Equipment manufactureRs need to focus research and development on the 5G technical requirements of capacity, density and latency, squeezing every bit-per-second out of the limited spectrum. Techniques such as: high order modulation over 4096QAM, dual band, bi band and E band linking, and MiMo enable microwave transmission to fulfil the needs of 5G.
This presentation intends to provide a high-level overview of 5G from the point of view of a New Zealand microwave radio design organisation, and standards authorities ETSI.
