In recent years mobile and fixed network technologies have evolved, driven by an ever increasing need for bandwidth.
Today, a major shift is happening, moving the focus increasingly away from bandwidth to latency. In this presentation, an overview will be given of the state of different access technologies, both in fixed and wireless networks going from DSL over cable to fiber, 5G and WiFi. Major changes in access network technologies will be highlighted, including how the end-to-end network architectures will enable lower latency applications going forward by moving the cloud to the edge of the network.
