This webinar by Reza Vaez-Ghaemi of Viavi Solutions was recorded on May 19, 2020 and sponsored by the IEEE Future Networks Initiative education working group. 

Emerging 5G services place stringent requirements on optical and transport networks. Much higher bandwidth and ultra-reliable and low latency are examples of these requirements that drive a set of new technologies and architectures in backhaul, fronthaul and the new midhaul networks. Next generation passive optical networks (NG-PON), Timing Sensitive Networks (TSN), Radio over Ethernet (RoE), and enhanced Common Public Radio Interface (eCPRI) represent some of these key emerging technologies. The presentation starts with a short introduction of the 5G services and their network requirements, and focuses on describing the main features and benefits of the new technologies.
