UMass Lowell professor teams up with entrepreneur to produce open-source software for distributing COVID-19 test kits and collecting test data.
VIAVI’s TeraVM O-RAN test suite now supports Centralized Unit load testing.
Open radio access networks are moving ahead and will likely become the preferred connection between 5G radios and core networks.
Radio-access networks are changing from a single unit into a distributed system, which impacts how networks keep time. Precision Time Protocol will distribute timing information, keeping the units synchronized in time and phase.
iEW400 IP from Imagination Technologies lets you add the latest Wi-Fi connectivity to an FPGA, SoC, or ASIC, with focus on minimizing power consumption and increasing battery life.
The BBox from TMYTEK lets you control a signal’s amplitude and phase under software control. Use it to test antennas, phones, small cells, and measure material properties when subjected to mmWave signals.
Use the free test tool to check your radio and protocols before bringing your low-power IoT device to a lab for certification.
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access increases the efficiency of a crowded Wi-Fi channel. The access point is in control, managing who gets bandwidth and when.
MIMO differs from LTE to 5G, plus 5G adds mmWave frequencies and beam steering. Both force changes in emulating channels.
The days of a proprietary radio-access network are vanishing as carriers look for disaggregated systems, increasing flexibility while reducing cost
