5G technology is driving growth in the mobile fronthaul network with the need to massively increase the number of radios, number of connected clients and the average bandwidth per client. Ethernet is the choice across the operator community to drive down the cost of the mobile fronthaul network. However traditional Ethernet switches are not equipped to handle this. Ethernet switches in the fronthaul network must support CPRI, eCPRI and RoE (Radio Over Ethernet) features in addition to existing packet features. Ethernet switches must also meet the stringent timing and latency guarantee requirements of the
fronthaul network by implementing Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). With a complete set of Ethernet packet control and management features, along with support for CPRI and eCPRI interfaces and the latest TSN (Time Sensitive Networking) standards, Capgemini Engineering’s software framework helps OEMs / NEPs to address the complicated technology demand, deliver products within short time windows and recover investments in network upgrades within compressed lifecycles.
