InterDigital Demonstrates Integrated Fronthaul and Backhaul Over Millimeter Wave System

WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterDigital, Inc. (NASDAQ:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, will participate in a milestone demonstration for the H2020 5GPPP 5G-Crosshaul consortium by integrating its EdgeLink™ system into an integrated fronthaul and backhaul trial at the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin today.

5G-Crosshaul is an international project with 21 members aimed at developing integrated fronthaul and backhaul system solutions to support flexibility and unified management for 5G network architectures.  InterDigital’s EdgeLink is a wireless transport solution that provides mesh network connectivity over a 60GHz data link.

The demonstration will validate the project’s technology innovations through showcasing a multiplex of backhaul and new fronthaul traffic carried over the same millimeter wave (mmW) link, and under the control of a Software Defined Networking (SDN) mesh controller for mmW small cells. InterDigital’s EdgeLink nodes have been installed within the 5G-testbed and will serve as the mmW link within the demonstration.

“Various research and standardization forums leading the development of 5G, have aligned on the vision that fronthaul and backhaul will converge,” said Alan Carlton, Vice President, InterDigital Europe. “This demonstration validates the industry-wide alignment and showcases how the technology presented is an important ingredient to enable a cost effective and scalable 5G network, by providing a wireless solution for the transport of fronthaul and backhaul data.”
