Looking at various research and standardization forums leading the development of 5G, such as 5G-PPP, NGMN, 3GPP, IEEE, ITU, IETF, ETSI, etc., all seem to align on the vision that the fronthaul and backhaul will converge or fuse in 5G into what is now popularly referred to as Crosshaul or Xhaul. So what requirements are driving such a fusion in 5G? Which enabling technologies could make it happen? Where are the remaining gaps and what is the industry doing to make it happen? And when are we going to see it? Featuring leading experts in the industry, this panel aims at discussing the Crosshaul (Xhaul) topic from the various angles of requirements, architecture, enabling technologies, standardization, and market deployment.
