Cable’s Role in the 5G Evolution (2018)

By Erik Gronvall, CommScope

For years, mobile network operators (MNOs) have tried to deploy small cells to boost coverage and increase capacity. Deployments have been limited because of the costs involved in putting sub-5-watt radios everywhere, and they end up going back to the macro site and increasing capacity there. The cost issues involve power, backhaul, and real estate. However, with 5G there will be a need to move to a more densified network and MSOs have all the components available to them to assist the MNOs in deploying these networks. This paper will discuss the challenges and trends from the mobile networks and how MSOs can take advantage of their existing assets to enable the next wireless generation.
