When complete, Altran’s 5G test lab will emulate all parts of a network, letting hardware engineers, network engineers, and software developers test products at any point in the 5G network. 5G Technology World interviewed Altran’s Shamik Mishra, CTO Connectivity, about the lab.
The SMM100A series of vector signal generators from Rohde & Schwarz have models that generate RF signals from 100 kHz with a high-end model to 44 GHz. That covers today’s 5G frequencies and more.
CES isn’t just about the latest consumer gadgets, there’s something for engineers, too.
Sold-state drives using the Nonvolatile Memory Express (NVMe) architecture support computers that include wireless routers, IoT and sensor network gateways, video cameras, and industrial PCs. Solid-state drives (SSDs) connect to hosts over PCIe, which can even run over network fabrics such as Ethernet. SSDs connected using NVMe and PCIe can attain higher data rates than…
In a video interview, James Kimery of Spirent Communications explains how test plays the role of arbiter of communications among radio units, distribution units, and centralized units.
5G Technology World spoke with Analog Devices’ Nitin Sharma on the massive MIMO technology deployed in 5G base stations from NEC.
RF power amplifiers consume lots of energy, which is a concern associated with 5G. Envelope tracking helps reduce power consumption but has tradeoffs.
The BNTL-RAN550 O-RAN radio unit from Benetel connects to a distribution unit, bringing 5G to indoor facilities.
A toolkit lets integrated operators run their mobile and fixed-line operations on a common 5G core.
The Open RAN Coalition’s roadmap provides guidance for governments trying to navigate through 5G by promoting cooperation, providing financial incentives, and implementing policy.
