In the past decade, microwave transport technology has evolved to address the increasingly demanding requirements of wireless networks. 4.x and 5G standards introduce new architectures and new interfaces and enable new services with different requirements. This is creating capacity and latency constraints on the transport network. This paper examines how the latest developments and standards will help microwave continue to be a relevant transport technology in 4.x and 5G networks.
