Introduction to 5G Network Engineering - Unit 8: RAN Deployment Options
With a great deal of flexibility built-in, and new standardised interfaces to support that flexibility, the NG-RAN can be implemented using a range of deployment scenarios. In this unit, we look at the different options, the requirements in terms of connectivity (fronthaul / backhaul / high-speed to the Remote Radio Heads), the advantages and disadvantages of the various options, and the terminology used.
