Join us for our 5G webinar series, part of EXFO's TEST Talks 2021 series of panel discussions and webinars. In this series of three webinars, our experts will take a deep dive into the architectures, technologies and processes required to make 5G a reality. We’ll also explore best-practice testing strategies that will play a critical role in making 5G deployments feasible, successful and sustainable.
Attend as many sessions as you like. Topics include 5G network testing best practices, over-the-air (OTA) testing as well as timing and synchronization. Join us June 23, June 30 and July 7—and let’s talk 5G done right!
5G networks will bring forth stricter speed, latency and bandwidth requirements—and mandate the deployment of a lot more fiber and small cells.
In fact, 5G will require:
To deliver on the promise of 5G, operators will need to implement new testing processes in order to guarantee first-time right network installation and turn-up. This interactive webinar will cover testing methods and procedures required to successfully turn-up and troubleshoot new 5G cell sites.
5G NR cellular networks represent a significant evolution from their legacy counterparts, with very different scenarios and traffic types coming into play. As a result, the air interface has increased in complexity and poses new challenges for base station characterization and the evaluation of KPI measurements. This webinar will discuss the main advances that 5G networks bring and what this means for deploying, optimizing and supporting the new 5G NR network.
5G requires frequency and phase synchronization to support advanced features such as time-division duplex (TDD), dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) and beamforming. Operators are turning to network synchronization, relying on IEEE 1588 PTP (Precision Time Protocol) and Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE) as the preferred solution to synchronize every network element, from the core to the radios, in frequency and in phase.
This webinar will cover the timing & synchronization challenges that 5G brings and the standards and test applications that ensure optimal delivery of 5G use cases.
