Cisco to Optimize NTT DOCOMO’s 5G Mobile Backhaul for Simpler, More Flexible and Scalable Network Operation
NTT DOCOMO selected Cisco NCS routers and Segment Routing technology for network slicing to help optimize its 5G mobile backhaul in preparation for the commercial service.
Mobile backhaul is the transport network that connects the 5G radio (in the cell tower) to the core network that feeds into the data centers. DOCOMO needed a blueprint for more cost effective transport to meet its future 5G base station facility plan capable of achieving 400 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) speeds.
