With internet users growing by the minute, comes the great challenge of ensuring faster speeds and higher bandwidths. 5G, the next wireless revolution, comes as a solution that can cater to the endlessly growing base of users. But 5G infrastructure requires denser deployments of small cells within cities having high backhaul capacity. The fibre optic cables can meet this demand but rolling out an extensive fibre network poses deployment complications. Laying down fibre is time consuming and costly process and makes expansion near impossible specifically in developing nations.
