Deploying 5G networks may not seem more complicated than 4G/LTE, but unlike its predecessors, 5G is actually way more complex. 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: 

  • 100x more fiber links
  • 2500% improvement in link latency  
  • 1000x more network devices (i.e. transceivers, switches and radio equipment) 

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. 

Key takeaways:    

  • Testing best practices for accelerating 5G fiber rollouts
  • Achieve first- time- right cell site installation and turn-up
  • Featuring a live virtual test demonstration
