WS01: Next Generation Backhaul/Fronthaul Networks (BackNets 2015)

Organizer: Muhammad Zeeshan Shakir (Texas A&M University, Qatar)

There are considerable market interests on the development of smart backhaul/fronthaul solutions for next generation of networks that are an evolution of the existing backhaul technologies, i.e., SDH, ATM, MPLS and Ethernet. One of the main considerations the operators are faced with today is how to migrate existing backhaul/fronthaul network toward a smart backhaul infrastructure suitable for the next generations of cellular technology. The debut edition of IEEE ICC Workshop on Next Generation Backhaul/Fonthaul Networks (BackNets) is anticipated as a collection of outstanding technical research and industrial papers covering research results with wide range of ingredients within the 5G framework. IEEE ICC BackNets 2015 is expected to provide an opportunity for exchanging new ideas and creating new space for innovative concepts in solving the challenging problems of smart backhauling for the excessive traffic and prepare the network for “The Age of the ZetaByte.”
