Service provider’s are planning/developing 5G Wireless deployments as their Network of the Future, but there are steps needed to converge, collapse and connect the existing networks to make that future leap possible. The embedded base of legacy TDM equipment and Class5 switches will not be part of this future network so a transitioning is a natural step forward. Converging Copper to Fiber, Collapsing TDM to IP-Enabled equipment and Connecting all to SoftSwitches will necessitate planning and construction, while the 5G Network begins to take shape.
