Communication systems such as 5G that operate at today’s wide bandwidths and high orders of modulation need to maintain proper SNR and EMV. Path loss and phase noise can get in the way.
From chipsets to network equipment to full-scale networks, benchmarking of communications products sets the bar for performance.
Signal analyzers and best measurement practices can minimize errors that result from losses at mmWave frequencies.
With all the talk about Open RAN, it’s still in the top of the first inning.
3GPP Release 16 brings new features to smartphones and IoT devices that reduce power consumption. It’s a start.
5G private networks will have more capabilities and broader appeal than LTE private networks. Planning, implementing, and maintaining a 5G private network has unique challenges for deployment and test.
MIMO differs from LTE to 5G, plus 5G adds mmWave frequencies and beam steering. Both force changes in emulating channels.
The concept of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications has been around for 20 years. So far, V2X has achieved limited uptake for several reasons. That’s about the change with the widespread deployment of 5G technology. The 5G new radio (NR) standards contain several innovations that will change the game for V2X technology, saving lives, reducing fuel consumption,…
