- Fujitsu Adds to Smart CPRI Transport Family for Evolving C-RAN Architecture
- Fujitsu Unveils Intelligent Mobile Fronthaul Solution for C-RAN Architectures
Mobile data traffic is skyrocketing as subscribers increasingly rely on smartphones and portable devices for on-the-go access to digital video, navigation, and other online media and services. To enable the needed capacity increases, improve network performance, and reduce cost, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) are turning to Centralized Radio Access Network (C-RAN) architectures, which offer significant advantages over the existing distributed RAN architecture.
The Fujitsu Smart xHaul solution uses the HFR flexiHaul product family, offering MNOs and wireline carriers a low-latency, high reliability optical transport option for a high-performance, cost-cutting C-RAN architecture. Topologies include point-to-point; self-healing ring; hub and spoke; as well as hybrids of all these. Temperature-hardened platforms capable of operating at -40°C to +65°C are used at both macro and small cell sites.
The Smart xHaul family includes co-existence with the upcoming time-sensitive Ethernet transport for 5G services and can be part of a comprehensive solution that combines other Fujitsu platforms. Solutions can incorporate the FLASHWAVE CDS and 9500 platforms, managed using the NETSMART 1500 system with migration to SDN/NFV using the 1FINITY and Virtuora platforms. This complete portfolio addresses fronthaul, midhaul, backhaul, and core network requirements with a fully managed, end-to-end solution—from the small cell pole to the central core point of presence (PoP).
