The Intersection of HFC and 5G (2017)

By Keith R. Hayes, Broadband Advisors Group, LLC

5G. 5G. 5G. On billboards, in your inbox, at your favorite tech blog:

  • 5G - What is it?
  • 5G- Where is it?
  • 5G - WHEN is it?
  • 5G - How will it be different for users and the supporting infrastructure?
  • 5G - Why do we need it?

One of the foundational differences of 5G from the previous mobile communications Generations is its density – perhaps 10x or more than 4G – driving the need for Location, Power, and Connectivity for the Radios that the Hybrid Fiber-Coax (HFC) network is potentially well-equipped to support. This paper will delve into the 5G topology to answer those questions and review performance expectations and how they might map into an HFC network with Data Over Cable Service Interface Specifications (DOCSIS) 3.0 and DOCSIS 3.1
