5G Provides New Cybersecurity Safeguards For Networks And Customers
5G Provides New Cybersecurity Safeguards For Networks And Customers

5G Americas, the industry trade association and voice of 5G and LTE for the Americas, recently announced the publication of The Evolution of Security in 5G, a white paper that explores improvements in 5G technologies that have been developed to address current and emerging cybersecurity threats in commercial wireless networks.

    Novel Communications Architecture For Future Ultra-High Speed Wireless Networks

    The radio frequency spectrum, the basis for wireless telecommunications, is a finite resource that needs to be managed effectively to satisfy the demands posed by the exponential growth in wireless internet access. IMDEA Networks researchers have developed a novel communications architecture for future ultrafast wireless networks that promises to achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.

    Constellation Diagrams: The Fault In Our Stars

    Constellation diagrams are 2D graphical representations of digitally modulated signals.  They are used for the display and analysis of digitally modulated waveforms and provide valuable insight into the performance of a digital communication system.

Understanding And Testing Multi-Channel RF Systems With Signal Generators

As the number of antennas grow in wireless systems, test complexity also increases. As a result, it is necessary to generate multiple RF channels for receiver testing and to analyze multiple RF channels for transmitter testing. Generating and analyzing multiple synchronized RF signals are potentially challenging. This white paper discusses test signal requirements for the evaluation of multi-channel RF systems and how to configure instruments for these test requirements.

Reimagining The Role Of Connectivity In Communications, Sensing, And Protection Of Ground Forces

The U.S. and several NATO countries have been working on the seemingly impossible task of reducing size and weight of soldiers’ equipment while simultaneously increasing functionality and power. For engineers dealing with connectivity issues, this has brought about smaller and smaller connectors, cables and devices. Interconnected and portable devices have until now mainly been used by soldiers on covert operations. A wired tactical vest extends the concept of wearables beyond special forces by making the garments more modular, more accessible, and more affordable.

NewSpace Terminal Testing Challenges And Considerations

NewSpace networks and terminal vendors need to thoroughly test wireless communication systems and components to ensure uninterrupted operation and high quality of service. This white paper focuses primarily on the challenges ground terminals (user terminals and gateway terminals) present to design verification testing and manufacturing. Conducted and radiated test solutions are also discussed.

Designing Microwave PCBs For Successful Manufacture — Getting It Right The First Time

With improvements in processor speed and model accuracy, it is more and more common for microwave circuit simulations to bear close approximation to their eventual real-world performance. However, not all pitfalls present in the successful manufacture of a complex microwave circuit are captured in simulations. This white paper looks at some common mistakes and discusses how to adjust a design to avoid them.

    What Is Your Old Spectrum Analyzer Hiding From You?

    Digital Phosphorus Technology, or DPX, is a Tektronix patented acquisition mode that performs the hardware DSP processing and rasterizing of the samples into pixel information in order to reveal a greater amount of signal detail. It gives a truly “live” view of the RF signals, with its color-grading feature allowing users to see different signals at the same frequency yet separated by either time or power levels. In this video, DPX is demonstrated and reveals signals that your old spectrum analyzer might be hiding from you. You can literally see signals hidden beneath other signals!
