A Deep Dive into New Radio and mmWave for 5G

Available on Demand

Monday, 26 June 2017 • 1:00 PM EDT, 10:00 AM PDT, 17:00 UTC/GMT

Duration: 
60 Minutes

Join us for a technical overview of the New Radio (NR) standard being proposed for 5G. NR aims to provide a solution for both sub 6 GHz and mmWave. Evolving communications from the sub 6 GHz frequencies into mmWave frequencies presents a variety of unknowns and challenges. This webinar will also discuss what some of those challenges are and the ongoing research for mmWave communications.
