The expansion of 5G will inevitably result in a surge of data traffic. And because 5G networks aim to support applications that require real-time responses, such as autonomous vehicles and telemedicine, they must also offer incredibly low latency. Only fiber optic technology can ensure the capacity, speed, reliability and security 5G networks require.

In this wide-ranging discussion, Ryan McCowan and fellow industry experts will explore the pivotal role of fiber broadband in enabling 5G networks. They will discuss how fiber can be efficiently and cost-effectively leveraged to provide the reliable, high-speed and secure connectivity necessary to fuel the evolution of the next generation of mobile technology.
