Managing Interference and Fiber Network Availability in C-RAN-What You Need to Know


Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 1:00 PM (CT)


Interference and PIM have always been a major issue for mobile network operators (MNOs). With the ongoing densification of the network however, interference is multiplying and its impact on mobile bandwidth and subscriber QoE will significantly increase. The fiberization of the fronthaul network and adoption of the C-RAN topology is a chance for MNOs to greatly improve their operational efficiency for detecting, hunting and mitigating interference, while optimizing their overall network performance.

This webinar will delve into operational challenges and best practices for addressing interference, PIM and fiber-related issues in mobile networks, and improving the quality of fiber-based fronthaul and CRAN deployments.
