What is 5G Transport?
5G transport connects (by fiber or microwave connections) all nodes in the Radio access network (RAN) with the Core and becomes the backbone of the 5G mobile network. The transport networks is often divided into fronthaul and backhaul: the fronthaul connects the radio unit to the baseband and the backhaul ties the basebands to the core to fulfill use case and capacity demands. Transport networks need to be capable of handling all the Gs; 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G in a cost-efficient way while fulfilling the requirements of 5G and its services. Ericsson has developed a complete mobile transport portfolio designed with precision to deliver ubiquitous 5G coverage wherever it is needed. Scalable, flexible and cost-efficient transport solutions from Ericsson deliver superior 5G RAN performance to connect 5G services everywhere.
