5G Evolution: On the Path to 6G

5G deployments have only recently started, and releases beyond R15 will continue to tap into the tremendous potential of 5G. However, as a new generation of cellular technology typically appears every 8-10 years, 6G can be expected around 2030. 6G could offer high-fidelity holograms, multi-sensory communications, Tera Hertz (THz) communications, and pervasive artificial intelligence. In… Read more »

dB or not dB?

Everything you ever wanted to know about decibels but were afraid to ask… True or false: 30 dBm + 30 dBm = 60 dBm? Why does 1% work out to be -40 dB one time but then 0.1 dB or 0.05 dB the next time? These questions sometimes leave even experienced engineers scratching their heads.… Read more »

Interference hunting in TDD networks

In time division duplex (TDD) networks, the downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) use the same frequency band in different timeslots. When viewing such TDD signals on a conventional spectrum display, it is impossible to differentiate the two as well as any other unwanted signals present in the same spectrum. This makes interference hunting extremely difficult.… Read more »

Power saving methods for LTE-M and NB-IoT devices

LTE-M and NB-IoT are LTE based internet of things (IoT) technologies. Both require long battery lifetime to ensure IoT services and minimize maintenance costs in the future. This technical white paper describes the possible power saving methods that can be applied to LTE-M and NB-IoT devices and gives a guideline of the applicability of the… Read more »

5G New Radio Digital Book

The 5G New Radio eBook from Rohde & Schwarz describes all relevant details of the 5G NR technology – the fundamentals and procedures. More importantly, it takes into account the relevant implementation aspects since test and measurement equipment is required to develop, manufacture and service 5G NR products. The eBook describes “how” the technology was… Read more »

Testing Passive Networks in a Distributed Antenna System

With more than 80 % of cellular traffic coming from inside a building, distributed antenna systems (DAS) have become increasingly more popular. However, without a sound testing methodology, these systems can be complex to test. Request your free poster and download the pdf to learn more about DAS and how to test these systems.
