Luca Pesando, ISG F5G Chair, Dr. Marcus Brunner, ISG F5G Liaison Officer
The F5G network has three characteristics for extending and enhancing fixed networks, defined as eFBB, FFC and GRE. To implement these characteristics, the F5G architecture has introduced new design principles and new features. Such features include separation of the data plane into an Underlay Plane and a Service Plane, dual network fabrics for the Aggregation Network, comprising an IP/Ethernet and an OTN fabric, and the seamless and combined usage of PON and OTN, and E2E slicing. Based on these design principles and new features, F5G can provide a variety of services for residential and enterprise customers over one physical network with guaranteed SLAs.
The webinar will provide brief introduction of the E2E F5G architecture and addressing the above mentioned features. Besides the network architecture, also the overall ISG F5G projects and its progress will be illustrated.
