5G Beam Management in MATLAB
In this webinar, we introduce 5G New Radio (NR) beam management procedures at the physical layer. Operation at millimeter-wave frequencies require beam management procedures for initial access in 5G NR. We will cover the stages of beam sweeping, beam measurement, beam determination and beam reporting for such a system. We will also discuss differences in these procedures for Standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes.
Using reference designs from 5G and Phased Array System Toolboxes, we highlight
- Initial access procedures including transmit/receive point (TRP) beam sweeping
- UE-end beam sweeping to establish a beam pair link
- Using synchronization signal blocks (SSB), for both azimuth and elevation plane sweeps
- Transmit-end beam refinement using channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS)
