Q&A on 5G Backhaul

Join us on August 2, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT for a conference call where CIR will discuss findings from the firm's new report, “Optical Networking Opportunities in 5G Wireless Networks: 2017-2026.”

In the firm's latest report, we predict that worldwide expenditures on 5G backhaul will exceed $2 billion dollars by 2022 and that the optical networking industry will be a key beneficiary of the 5G backhaul build, accounting for almost 60% of 5G backhaul expenditures.

On the call we will discuss technologies, markets, growth, opportunities and obstacles throughout the value chain.

There is no cost to attend the event. 

Please also feel free to submit a topic for discussion. 

A transcript will be available after the event.
