Global radio over fiber market: Growth of 5G networks

The RoF is a revolutionary technology that transmits radio signals over optical fibers and is emerging as a completely new and promising communication paradigm, as it delivers broadband wireless access services based on the synergy between fixed optical and millimeter wave technologies.

“Today, the 3G/4G networks are available worldwide, and it is expected that by 2020, 5G technology will evolve, providing a data speed of more than 10 to 20 times than 4G. The high-speed internet connectivity leads to web browsing, faster streaming of videos, social networking, and better performance of GPS, thus, enhancing the cell coverage of RoF. Thus, the growth of 5G networks is a trend for the RoF market,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
