Webinar Overview

Remote radio head units (RRH or RRU) are now an important element in base-station architecture with volumes attaining double-digit growth over the past year, driven by the need for improved flexibility and efficiency in the rollout of next generation cellular infrastructure. With higher-order MIMO driving up the RF port-count and higher data rates demanding more bandwidth, developers and manufacturers will see a rapid escalation in their test times and test costs. This webinar will explore those challenges and look at alternative ways to more efficiently meet the RRH measurement need.

What you will learn:

  • Market drivers leading to increased RRH deployment
  • Challenges in RRH performance verification
  • Test methods for improved capacity and profitability

Development engineers, validation engineers, regression test engineers, manufacturing engineers, architects, project managers, program managers, application managers, and application engineers.
