[S1] Future Technologies for Optical Transport Network Support of Post 5G Mobile Services

Mon. Jul 8, 2019 2:00 PM - 5:30 PM Room A (405+406, 4F, Fukuoka International Congress Center)

Organizers: Kota Asaka (NTT Corporation, Japan), Xiang Liu (Huawei, China), Raül Muñoz (CTTC, Spain), Noboru Yoshikane (KDDI Research, Inc., Japan)

Today, 5G is predicted to be one of the major drivers for network expansion. At the 3GPP meeting in July 2018, 5G phase1 related specifications (e.g. Rel-15) have been defined. Future releases such as 3GPP Rel-16 and Rel-17 will continue to add features that are related to 5G phase2. Considering this environment, 5G-based services are expected to be provided sooner or later. Furthermore, the concern with post 5G related research topics has been growing recently. This symposium will provide an overview of challenges and perspectives of future technologies for optical transport network support of post 5G mobile services.
