This webinar will share some basic knowledge about 5G, explain how it will impact the entire telecommunications infrastructure. Then it will focus on small cells and how to power and secure this equipment.
In recent months we have seen more and more pilot projects with 5G equipment around the world. This new technology will have a significant impact on the entire infrastructure, especially with the development of edge computing and the new antennas (called small cells) that we will need to power and secure.
The principle of edge computing is to add more data processing capabilities to the edge of the network (i.e., close to the users). The purpose is both to reduce the latency (the time between the request of a data and the reception of this one) and to decongest the network at the core level.
Since 5G operates with millimeter waves, the range of the signal is greatly reduced. As a result, we will need to add thousands of small cells throughout urban areas to provide sufficient coverage.
In this webinar, we will give some basic knowledge about 5G, explain how it will impact the entire telecommunications infrastructure, and then we will focus on small cells and how to power and secure this equipment.
