Interference Hunting in 5G Networks

The tools and techniques used in interference hunting have remained largely the same across previous generations of cellular technologies. Differences in modulation, bandwidth, and frequency bands for 5G networks will however require substantial changes in how interference is detected, located, and resolved in 5G networks. This webinar will provide a short overview of pre-5G interference…

Identifying and Locating Short-Duration Interferers

The ability to efficiently detect, analyze and locate sources of radio-frequency interference has become increasingly important in modern wireless networks. Unlike constant or near-constant sources, so-called short-duration interferers can only be detected for brief periods of time and therefore special tools and techniques are often required when searching for these types of signals. This paper…

Webinar: Art & Science of Interference Hunting

The rapid spread of wireless technologies has been accompanied by an increase in interference issues. Timely and efficient resolution of these issues is critical in avoiding service interruptions and in guaranteeing quality of service.
