Verizon is looking to implement a fiber alternative to scale 5G deployments

Verizon is considering Integrated Access Backhaul (IAB) technology as a way to deliver 5G service to areas where it's prohibitively expensive to run fiber cabling.

Reducing fiber costs through the use of IAB will help Verizon increase the speed and scale of its 5G deployment.
