5G extends its scope beyond consumer to many new vertical and enterprise markets. Thanks to its flexibility and improved performance, 5G opens the door to many industrial applications.
The laws of physics work against RF engineers, forcing design tradeoffs in mmWave systems. Beam steering, frequency reuse, and greater spectral efficiency can help.
Keysight expands is wireless test offerings, moving into monitoring of RF and low-layer protocols.
A trio of mid-band radios include SoCs that handle much of the processing. RAN compute products round out the announcement.
A swath of 500 MHz that could add spectrum to 5G looks like low-hanging fruit, but it’s not without opposition. New sharing technology could solve the problem.
Qualcomm, Ericsson, and TIM demonstrated just how far a line-of-site mmWave connection can reach, which could make fixed-wireless access more practical. Qualcomm’s Gautam Sheoran explains in the video interview.
With the announcement of the Snapdragon X65 and X62, Qualcomm boosts 5G data rates, lowers power consumption, and supports 3Gpp Release 16.
Spectrum Multiplier software from Cohere Technologies uses Delay-Doppler effects to predict how a wireless channel will change in real time, letting base stations control MU-MIMO beams.
5G Technology World spoke with Analog Devices’ Nitin Sharma on the massive MIMO technology deployed in 5G base stations from NEC.
As Wi-Fi 6E products come to market, they need testing. The Pal-6E from octoScope lets you test performance at these new frequencies.
