While the state has delayed in allocating both 4G and 5G radio spectrum in South Africa, local network providers need to plan now for their networks’ future 5G requirements. From a practical perspective, 5G will need more bandwidth per cell. The use of WDM allows operators to get the most out of current fibre networks and deliver an increased capacity, while the combination of CPRI will bring a major increase in speed. This means that service providers can use this offering across their entire infrastructure.
