As the frequency and complexity of 5G devices increases, the ability to perform conducted measurements will become more difficult. As a result, the ability to make accurate and repeatable measurements over-the-air will be required. In this short video, technology marketing manager will explain why 5G devices will require OTA testing.
Massive MIMO will play a key role in 5G systems. In this short video, technology marketing manager Reiner Stuhlfauth will explain the need for Massive MIMO and how it evolved within mobile communication systems.
A key underlying technology for 5G, Massive MIMO systems are complex and combine technologies such as beam forming, spatial multiplexing and large antenna arrays. In this short video, technology marketing manager Reiner Stuhlfauth explains the technology and key challenges associated with these systems.
Beam forming involves an antenna array in which the amplitude and phase of each antenna element is adjusted. In this short video, technology marketing manager Reiner Stuhlfauth discusses the pros and cons of analog, digital and hybrid beam forming systems.
In 5G systems, beam forming is one of the key underlying technologies to achieve the high data throughputs that will be required. In this short video, technology marketing manager Reiner Stuhlfauth explains the underlying motivation and technology aspects of beam forming for mobile networks.
Pre-5G will be focused on Fixed Wireless Access. Using an antenna array at the base station, multiple beams can be created to direct the power and direction of the signal to a user or group of users. In this short video, technology marketing manager Reiner Stuhlfauth explains these key technology aspects.
