5G NR standards continue to evolve. Are you current on the standards and what is coming next? One of the biggest gaps in the specifications is how new devices and base stations will be approved through conformance tests and validated on the networks. Download this eBook to make sure you understand the basics of the 5G NR standards and what is coming next.
Make smart factories smart - use data analytics to maximize throughput, minimize downtime, and reduce expenses. Build a successful smart factory with Keysight’s Pathwave Analytics, an Industry 4.0-ready solution. Learn how to harness Industry 4.0 to make your factories smarter through this white paper.
Complex transmitter and antenna systems are needed to meet high speed and efficiency goals set by the radio industry for 5G. Alternative measurement methods such as effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) for transmitter power and beam verification must be used. Learn how to facilitate the "over-the-air" (OTA) measurement of EIRP on active base stations using an accessory dual polarized waveguide antenna.
When stakes are high and mission-critical, such as health care, factory automation, transportation and utilities, it is crucial for IoT designers to have confidence in their chipsets, modules, end devices and networks. This is especially true in the RF domain, where environments significantly change once they reach the end users. Read more about RF testing for mission-critical IoT design.
Today, artificial intelligence (AI) adds new technologies to 5G research that can help address several challenges. This white paper examines the current opportunities to accelerate the future of 5G communications networks with the help of AI. It is not an exhaustive list nor a full description of the applications and technologies, but it explores the research topics that NI believes will improve the way we communicate soon.
In this white paper, learn how to install and configure OAI eNodeB (eNB) physical-layer software on NI USRP-2974 hardware to implement a 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) cellular base station (eNodeB). Future Ettus Research application notes will show you how to install and configure the other stack layers and network components such as the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and Mobility Management Entity (MME); and how to integrate the handset (user equipment, or UE) side with public Internet connectivity.
Understanding Key Real-Time Spectrum Analyzer Specifications
Advances in technology and design have enabled the creation of the first high performance real-time handheld spectrum analyzer with a 110 MHz analysis bandwidth and a 100% probability of intercept duration of 2.06 μs. Together with the variable persistence density display and spectrogram, the Anritsu Field Master Pro MS2090A spectrum analyzer is well suited to meet challenges in analyzing dynamic RF signal events and detecting transient interferers, and unwanted hidden signals.
