Seminar to provide overview of 5G new Radio

Fleet, UK, 25 April 2019 — Rohde & Schwarz today announced that Demystifying 5G 2019, a forum for sharing valuable information about standards, regulations, best practices and technical tips, will take place at the Madejski Stadium in Reading on 21st May 2019. The one day event will include in-depth analysis, practical demonstrations, focus sessions and a formal Q&A, that will cover a high level view of 5G New Radio, including the fundamentals, procedures and testing aspects.

Reiner Stuhlfauth, Technology Manager Wireless at Rohde & Schwarz, will start the seminar with a high-level view of 5G, its current status globally, and the technology framework. Two in-depth Reiner Stuhlfauth.blogpresentations will look at the air interface, including beam forming and managing signals and channels, as well as requirements and test procedures for OTA equipment testing. Test demonstrations and shorter sessions will also take place on protocol testing and network-performance measurements, and a formal opportunity for joint discussion and questions.

Commenting on the event, Reiner Stuhlfauth said, “Although 5G rollouts are already beginning, test specifications are not complete and there are still open points that need to be clarified. Companies that are currently developing products or services that use 5G networks need to know how to avoid compatibility or performance problems. The Demystifying 5G event will bring people together from across the industry to look at the sheer scope and complexity of 5G, and share information to support new applications, and providing equipment and services to target markets.”

5G NR is paving the way for innovative new services such as eMBB, mMTC and URLLC with its flexible radio interface and new infrastructure concepts like network slicing. The seminar will also provide an overview of the 5G NR physical layer, and the role its flexible infrastructure and procedures plays in delivering an excellent quality of service across diversified services and applications. Along with the new paradigm that 5G NR technology introduces, Rohde & Schwarz will also introduce the latest and best methods for testing 5G NR devices, components and base stations.

The Demystifying 5G seminar will take place at The Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, Madejski Stadium, Reading on the 21 May 2019, with registration and breakfast from 8.30am.
