5G mmWave – A Challenge for Device Testing and How to Solve It

Presented by: Günter Pfeifer, Market Segment Manager, Rohde & Schwarz, Munich

Abstract: 5G NR in the sub 6 GHz frequency range (FR1) can be seen as a natural evolution of LTE to achieve higher bandwidth and more flexibility on the physical layer in order to realize all the new and additional use cases defined for a next-generation mobile network. The real technical challenge, however, comes with 5G mmWave (FR2), which opens up a new level of complexity in device development. mmWave frequencies imply measurement challenges that call for new testing approaches. In this webinar, we take a closer look at the major challenges mmWave brings and discuss innovative test solutions.

Attendees will learn about: 

  • How to overcome the mmW challenge in mobile device design
  • How 5G mmWave impacts device testing
  • Test solutions for mmWave that simplify an engineer’s life
