Fiber Access: The secret of 5G's success

The extraordinary future of 5G with Fixed Networks

The vital role of broadband in society

The global crisis created by COVID-19 will have a profound and long-lasting impact on humanity. Governments and industries will, of course, all need to evaluate the long-term implications. However, for the broadband industry, this reflection must start now.

Better together: fiber access and 5G break the Gigabit barrier

Gigabit broadband to everybody, everywhere: that's the goal. Together, 5G and fiber can make it a reality. Where 5G will be in most demand, fiber access networks can be used to connect all the small cells and offload traffic.

Where fiber access can't quite reach, 5G can provide the final connection to bring Gigabit broadband into homes and businesses.

When complementing each others' deployments like this, 5G and fiber bring better broadband to more people, more quickly, and more cost-effectively than either can alone.

Accelerate 5G

5G networks depend on fiber networks because only fiber can support the massive connectivity, super-high data rates and low latency that 5G demands. For 5G to be successful, we need fiber all the way to the cell. FTTH networks already exist where 5G is needed most, so it makes perfect sense to use them for 5G transport.

  • It makes for faster (and cheaper) 5G deployments than building separate transport networks.
  • It's ready to scale, as FTTH can easily handle 5G densification and increased traffic.
  • It supports software-defined network slicing for a dedicated, low-latency mobile transport slice.

An analysis by Bell Labs Consulting shows that leveraging existing FTTH networks can decrease 5G transport costs by more than 50% compared to traditional solutions.
