Network Performance Score

There is a demand for an efficient method of calculating an overall score that reflects the perceived technical performance of a network or one of its subsets, such as a region, a period of time or technology. The method described here considers and weights the key performance indicators (KPI) for a wide range of services… Read more »

Understanding PIM

A subtle, but widespread, cause of interference in radio frequency networks in general, and cellular networks in particular, is something called passive intermodulation, or PIM. This paper explains what PIM is, common sources of PIM, how PIM is identified and tested, and the different ways in which PIM sources can be located in the field.

Webinar: Dynamic spectrum sharing- Driving 5G to scale

Previous generational upgrade cycles required operators to undertake the expensive, time-consuming process of spectrum refarming. But, for 5G, dynamic spectrum sharing allows carriers to side-step that process by transmitting LTE and 5G NR in the same band at the same time. DSS, coupled with the availability of compatible devices, will lead to widespread 5G coverage in 2020 and help ease the transition on to standalone 5G.
