How massive MIMO Challenges 5G base Station Testing

How massive MIMO Challenges 5G base Station Testing

Massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) antenna systems and beamforming are no doubt the key enablers and fundamental components of 5G deployment. This webinar explains the MIMO techniques used in today’s commercially deployed networks. It further discusses the latest MIMO enhancements specified in 3GPP Release 16, finalized in June 2020. The webinar also demonstrates how to apply Rohde & Schwarz oscilloscopes for testing phase-coherent 5G MIMO signals during the development of 5G base stations and small cells in the lab.

Fundamentals of Over-the-Air (OTA) Testing

Fundamentals of Over-the-Air (OTA) Testing

Future wireless technologies and standards will make over-the-air (OTA) testing a necessity. Engineers working with 5G NR and similar technologies today and in the future will need to have a basic understanding of antenna characteristics and how to properly measure them as part of a highly integrated sub-system. In this webinar, an OTA application engineer will cover the following topics: introduction to antenna parameters, the importance and execution of OTA test solution paradigms, and challenges of 5G OTA Measurements.

An Overview of NG-RAN and NR in 5G Networks

An Overview of NG-RAN and NR in 5G Networks

5G is being deployed around the globe, and brings with it new technologies and new challenges. Although for many, it feels like we just got here, the evolution of 5G has already begun. This webinar provides a technical overview of the key radio aspects of 5G. The architecture of NG-RAN including gNB-CU and gNB-DU is illustrated. Key features of the New Radio (NR) air interface are also described. A variety of NR topics are covered such as OFDM numerologies, frame structure, massive MIMO, channel coding, and radio protocol stack.

5G Evolution

5G deployments have only recently started, and releases beyond R15 will continue to tap into the tremendous potential of 5G. However, as a new generation of cellular technology typically appears every 8-10 years, 6G can be expected around 2030. 6G could offer high-fidelity holograms, multi-sensory communications, Tera Hertz (THz) communications, and pervasive artificial intelligence. In this webinar, we explore the evolution from 5G  from a service, air interface and network perspective, as well as take a crystal ball perspective on what the 5G evolution may look like.
