Make 5G happen

The world is getting smarter and needs profound communication technology, more than ever before.

5G is the catalyst that propels adoption of connectivity in new verticals. Connectivity together with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have no bounds in ways, of how our lives can change. With rapid adoption of 5G in new verticals from 5G broadcast, automotive to healthcare, not just the device landscape extends beyond mobiles to cars, robotics etc, the standards to conform and the way of testing change greatly with each new vertical.

The next generation networks are to fulfill greater flexibility and offer QoS/QoE on a different granularity to serve numerous applications and verticals. With a large number of deployments already underway, Rohde & Schwarz would like to share the challenges and the expertise in laying out the next generation 5G networks.

In this Technology Symposium, together with industry partners, we explore the building blocks of 5G and the new possibilities. While we are engrossed in addressing the key challenges 5G offers today in the field of Test and Measurement, the industry has already started gathering requirements and future applications towards 6G. We will share our views and the results of recent trials carried out with the industry partners.

Register now and attractive lucky draw prizes await you.

The event is free of charge; however confirmation of your attendance is required. Kindly register online before 1 November 2019.

Seats are limited.

Registration is now closed.

Delivering 5G
Delivering 5G

Track A: Delivering 5G

5G is here and it will drive advance applications like medical, robotics and smart devices. Important parameters need to be tested to ensure a smooth and efficient 5G roll out.

This track is designed for engineers who are in the midst of 5G roll out where we will share testing challenges extensively.

Join the track of Delivering 5G to learn:

  • The importance of 5G testing from UE’s perspective
  • The real case experience and challenges of 5G network roll out of other countries
  • How RF is correlated to Quality of Experience (QoE) of the users

Track B: Getting ready for 5G

5G is the next generation of mobile standards that promises to deliver improved end-user experience for public and private sectors. To prepare for 5G deployment, you need to understand the differences, the essence and how to use them to your advantage.

This track is design for engineers who are getting ready to roll out 5G especially for the Defense and Government sector.

Join the track of Getting ready for 5G to learn:

  • The differences of 4G and 5G technologies
  • Massive and MIMO Antenna beamforming
  • 5G pre-deployment challenges and interference hunting
