Optical fronthauling for 5G mobile: A perspective of passive metro WDM technology

Shihuan Jim Zou, Christoph Wagner, Michael Eiselt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


We discuss the necessity of passive WDM technology in the 5G fronthaul application. The proof-of-concept field trial showed that the proposed system integrated seamlessly with the current wireless equipment and had no impact on services.
