We’re excited to announce that we will be expanding our 25G portfolio for 5G deployments!
The current 4G LTE cell sites mainly adopt 10G optical modules, and the demand will transition to 25G devices in order fulfill the requirements for more bandwidth, faster speed, and lower latency in 5G. The 5G network architecture has undergone tremendous changes, mainly in the splitting of BBU. In the new architecture, it divides the original 4G BBU into CU (central unit) and DU (distributed unit), fully taking the advantages of “cloudification” and centralized control of the cell sites deployment.
In 5G deployments, small cells will play a significant role in the efficient delivery of high-speed mobile broadband and other low-latency applications. Champion ONE will offer 25G eCPRI, CPRI-10, and DWDM transceivers and passives solutions, which will play a key role in supporting small cell deployments.
Stay tuned to our blog for more updates on this exciting expansion of our product line. In the meantime, check out some of our previous coverage of 5G developments:
