ETSI creates industry group for work on 5th generation of fixed networks

Wednesday 26 February 2020 | 13:10 CET | News
The European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has formed the ETSI ISG F5G, a new group set up to define specifications for the fifth generation of fixed networks. The group will look at fibre connections and how these can be enhanced and guaranteed reliable. It will also consider the fixed-network evolution required to match the benefits 5G will bring to mobile networks. New opportunities here could turn the Fibre to the Home paradigm into Fibre to Everything Everywhere, ETSI said.
