5G NR Massive MIMO Testing with Channel Emulation

  • Webinar Date

    Thursday, February 20, 2020

    11:00 AM Central European Time

Webinar Overview

Massive multiple-input / multiple-output (MIMO) and beamforming are essential technologies to achieve the 100x data rates and the 1,000x capacity improvement goals of 5G. While base stations may deliver the needed performance, devices need to take full advantage of the base stations to ensure high end-user quality of experience (QoE). This webinar will dive into the challenges of end-to-end system performance testing for massive MIMO base stations and user equipment (UE). It will also address how to overcome those challenges.

Key Learning :

  • Main benefits of using massive MIMO technologies in 5G New Radio (NR) networks 
  • New challenges in testing massive MIMO-enabled networks 
  • How to emulate radio conditions and build test scenarios for massive MIMO base station and device end-to-end system performance
