Advancing Innovation & Strategy

Transport Networks for Mobile Operators (TNMO) has offered trusted and exceptional case studies from telecoms operators and solution providers from across the globe for over 16 years to discuss how operators can upgrade and expand their mobile networks.  In 2015 the event will focus on RAN and mobile backhaul architecture and how these are evolving to deliver the required performance to meet the bandwidth and capacity challenges of 5G and the IoT.

International operator experts will examine new and evolving RAN and backhaul architectures including; D-RAN, C-RAN, fronthaul, Het-Nets, Multi RAT, SON and small cell backhaul.  There will be a focus on the move towards virtualisation of the RAN and backhaul with virtual RANs, SDN and NFV.   There will also be an examination of the challenges all these new technologies represent for network synchronisation and timing requirements.

Plus, the event delivers a full evaluation of the different backhaul technologies such as packet microwave, fibre, MPLS, Carrier Ethernet so that you can determine which are the most effective for which scenario.

This conference is unique in its assessment of all the different RAN and backhaul architectures in one place at one time and represents your chance to discuss and debate mobile transport network evolution and determine how you will deliver next generation application and services.

“This was my first TNMO event and I was very impressed with the content.  The speakers were very knowledgeable and giving their experience” (RO, Imagine Communications TMNO 2015)
