Spotlight On Wireless Technology/5G
From The C Band To The V Band: A Year Of Big RF Spectrum Changes In The U.S.

Led by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), multiple portions of the spectrum ranging from the C band to the V band were either opened or auctioned to new uses throughout the year. These changes drive a variety of new opportunities for wireless device manufacturers and broadband and cellular carriers. These new opportunities result in a range of fresh challenges for RF technology vendors to help solve. 

O-RAN Next-Generation Fronthaul Conformance Testing

The O-RAN Alliance brings together mobile network operators, equipment manufacturers, device makers, and chipset suppliers to create standards and recommendations for an open radio access network (RAN). Building a more cost-effective, agile RAN requires openness. Open interfaces are essential to enable small-scale vendors to introduce their own services quickly and facilitate multi-vendor deployments and a more competitive supplier ecosystem. 

Spurious Testing Of 5G Devices Using EMI Receivers

With all eyes on the 5G wave, there are challenges that engineers face when it comes to radiated spurious emission (RSE) testing, and RSE testing is only one component of performing fully compliant EMC measurements. This application note features the latest developments in EMI test receivers, why they matter to everyday EMC measurements, and how developers of 5G wireless technology are chasing an aggressive and impressive vision.

Head-To-Head Coaxial Interconnect Vs. OTA Testing For 5G

The rise of 5G has changed the landscape of wireless testing. One of the biggest changes is the ability of test engineers to perform over-the-air (OTA) testing without connecting anything or having a special setup. OTA testing has the potential to revolutionize wireless device testing while enabling innovative testing of both advanced antenna systems (AAS) and antenna array technology.
