Digital conference on wireless communication - now on demand

The rollout of 5G networks is in full swing, and the industry is now focusing on delivering the ultimate 5G experience. The most important aspect at the moment is to ensure that the demanding requirements and KPIs are met with the help of thorough testing from design to production and operation.

The ever-present demand for more efficiency drives digitalization, virtualization and openness and ultimately pushes innovations in the mobile industry. New architectures, new applications and new value chains will give a boost for testing and certification.

The flexibility of 5G, its high bandwidth and real-time capabilities promise a wide range of new applications and will enable new business opportunities in several industries. 3GPP standard enhancements are in preparation for higher releases such as very precise positioning, integrating time-sensitive networking (TSN) for IIoT and C-V2X for automotive communication - and the next generation is already on the horizon.

The Mobile Test Summit will illuminate these aspects with the help of industry experts who are sharing their insights and visions, and Rohde & Schwarz experts will be sharing their testing expertise in four sessions.
