Electromagnetic field measurements in 5G: Overview and concepts (part 1)

May 20, 2020 | by Manuel Mielke

Why are electromagnetic field (EMF) measurements critical for the widespread rollout of 5G NR, and how do you measure electromagnetic radiation? Learn more about the two fundamentally different EMF measurement procedures – frequency-selective versus code-selective – and the arguments in favor of the latter.

Interference hunting in cities: Choose angle of arrival over power

October 24, 2018 | by Jeremy Carpenter

The urban RF environment is very demanding – densely packed with a myriad of cellular and non-cellular transmitters, interfering emitters, and inconveniently located building. This post explains why it pays to focus on the angle of arrival (AOA) method regarding speed, accuracy, and effectiveness when hunting interference in urban areas.
