Engineering the 5G World – Design and Test Insights
5G dominates the technology news — and for good reason. 5G's high-bandwidth and real-time capabilities hold enormous potential for society. These capabilities enable many new and unexpected applications, such as virtual and augmented reality, autonomous driving, and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
5G New Radio (NR) technologies discussed in this book include millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies, massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and beamforming, and over-the-air (OTA) testing. The content of each section follows the general workflow of 5G technology - from research and development (R&D), design validation, and manufacturing, to field deployment and monitoring.
The key topics covered in the book relate to the design and test of technology across the 5G ecosystem, including the following:
