  1. 4 Things To Know About Antenna Tuning In 4G/5G Smartphones
    8/29/2019

    Current trends in smartphone industrial design and RF requirements, especially with the upcoming transition to 5G, mean that smartphones must fit more antennas into less space and/or increase the bandwidth of existing antennas. This article introduces four key elements to understand about antenna tuning in 4G and 5G mobile devices.

  2. Redefining 5G New Radio Drive Testing
    8/15/2019

    As 5G NR networks are deployed, live network testing is needed to ensure network coverage and Quality of Experience (QoE). In addition, QoE testing in 5G NR will get more complicated due to changes in the network architecture. This means traditional testing will not reflect the true service quality as seen by an application. QoE field testing will need to be tested at the application layer to address the 5G NR QoE measurement challenge and translate the user experience into measurable KPIs.
