The critical role of testing for the next wave of 5G

In this video we address the significant challenges and innovative solutions in the evolving 5G landscape. As the industry shifts towards highly software-centric networks, the skills required to manage these networks have also transformed. Test and measurement providers are stepping up to bridge this gap by developing advanced tools and methodologies.

Latency issues and the demand for seamless connectivity are critical areas being addressed. Network densification, beamforming, massive MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output), and network slicing are essential components in managing and optimizing 5G networks. Network densification involves increasing the number of small cells in a given area to boost capacity and coverage. Beamforming and massive MIMO enhance signal quality and efficiency, while network slicing allows for the creation of virtual networks tailored to specific applications or services.
