This video explains the basic technical principles behind Passive Intermodulation (PIM), why PIM is an issue in wireless communications, and how to test PIM in the field.
This webinar uses a real case study from the first pervasive 5G network in Europe to examine the importance of site acceptance testing, identify the various deployment scenarios and define an efficient methodology to test the associated KPIs to ensure delivery of QoE to the 5G end user.
Internet of Things (IoT) and over-the-top (OTT) applications – how to quantify signaling impact and power consumption
Countless devices use cellular connectivity in order to exchange data. Machine to Machine (M2M) communications and the Internet of Things (IoT), which are part of the ongoing 5G discussions, foresee exponential growth in additional devices. Every day, new applications on smartphones become available, potentially influencing the user experience since smartphone batteries discharge very quickly. Each… Read more »
Battery life of 10+ years is a key requirement for many Internet of Things (IoT) applications. 3GPP Release 12 and later releases added LTE features such as eMTC, NB-IoT, eDRX and power-saving mode (PSM) to meet this important requirement. In order to select the most appropriate feature(s) and parameters, it is essential to understand the… Read more »
5G targets three main use-case families: enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), massive IoT and ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC). In particular for URLCC, secure communications is of utmost interest to vertical industries such as automotive, Industry 4.0 and eHealth. This webinar provides the background to IP secure connections and introduces a test solution that makes it… Read more »

NB-IoT and LTE-M will connect millions of devices to the Internet of Things. 3GPP standardization groups are working hard on further improvements to make 4G and 5G networks even more attractive for IoT applications. The ongoing work covers two main areas: applications for massive machine type communications (mMTC) that focus on low power, low cost,… Read more »
The new IEEE 802.11ax amendment (Wi-Fi 6) intends to improve the overall data throughput. In order to achieve this, Wi-Fi 6 introduces OFDMA for the first time, which enables the parallel communications with multiple stations (STA). This webinar provides a glimpse into the upcoming Wi-Fi 6 standard, explains related test requirements and demonstrates the value… Read more »
Long range (LoRa) is one of the most successful low-power wide-area-network (LPWAN) technologies operating in unlicensed bands. Superior RF performance under various RF conditions and battery lifetime are the key performance and quality criteria of LoRa devices and gateways. This webinar provides a brief introduction to the LoRa physical layer, explains related test and certification… Read more »
The rollout of 5G NR will initiate a worldwide deployment in an unknown radio environment where unwanted transmitters can degrade end-user QoE and in some cases cause outages of critical services. Prior to deployment, operators need to ensure the radio environment is free from interference by conducting spectral clearance and interference hunting. This webinar defines… Read more »
