Development of 5G products is accelerating with the first device and network deployments in 2019. 5G New Radio (NR) technology introduces a flexible architecture that will enable the ultra-fast, low-latency communications needed for next-generation mobile broadband networks and applications such as connected autonomous cars, smart buildings and communities, digital healthcare, industrial IoT, and immersive education. The flexibility of the 5G NR standard will make design and test more complex.
Engineers developing 5G enabling technologies and connected devices need a solid understanding of the fundamental concepts behind the 5G NR specification.
This talk demonstrates the key 5G physical layer technologies and concepts. You will learn about the structure of 5G waveforms; how the waveforms are constructed, modulated, and processed; beam management in massive MIMO systems; and methods for simulating and measuring link-level performance.
