The addition of a “wraparound” distributed unit test product for distributed units augments previous test suites for radio units and centralized units. Open radio-access networks (Open RAN) disaggregate a base station’s baseband unit (BBU) — the unit between the antenna and network core — into three parts: Radio unit, RU or O-RU; Distributed unit, DU…
Coalition pushes 12 GHz for 5G
At a press conference with 5G Technology World present, the 12 GHz for 5G Coalition continued its effort to change FCC rules and open 500 MHz for terrestrial use.
EdgeQ demos IC for base stations, PCIe card for Open RAN
Configurable silicon lets hardware run as a 4G/5G radio through to digital baseband at layer 3.
Network automation takes the work out of upgrades
Open RAN rewrites network-testing rules
Open radio access networks (Open RAN) bring new testing responsibilities that service providers haven’t had to contend with before. Learn why Open RAN changes the game for testing and validating network components, and how operators should approach these complex new requirements.
Private 5G: What is it? How does it work?
Private networks, whether operated by users or by wireless carriers, requires radios, addressing, timing, and automation to make them run.
OpenRAN mid-band radio brings cellular to private and campus networks
Benetel’s RAN650 operates in the n77u band, which covers CBRS and other private network frequencies. It’s compliant with O-RAN fronthaul specifications.
2022: The 5G predictions
Several standouts for 2022 reached our editorial offices. We present them here. As one year ends and another begins, so come the predictions. Over the past two years, we’ve seen how predicting the upcoming year is harder than ever. That doesn’t stop anyone from trying, though. How many of us throught we’ve still be dealing…
5G PHY fits into small cells
The PC802 PHY SoC from Picocom connects RFICs to access networks.
Open RAN: Design options from networks to memory
Open RAN networks offer network architecture options and memory-design options in 5G radios.
