5G powers up IoT at Tech Trends Symposium
A 5G network provides much more than just increased bandwidth and speed - 5G provides the opportunity to deploy artificial intelligence (AI) technology to bring the much-discussed Internet of Things (IoT) out of the laboratory and into the real world. To give people from all walks of life a better understanding of 5G networks, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) held the Tech Trends Symposium 2020 - The Future of Intelligent Connectiv...
SK Telecom opts for Keysight 5G test solutions
Keysight Technologies’ 5G test solutions have been selected by SK Telecom to validate that 5G devices used for enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) applications perform as intended on the mobile operator's network prior to commercial introduction.

4G to 5G: How to keep operating expenses under control
As mentioned in part 1 of this blog series, 5G will require the deployment of significantly more hardware to increase density and meet network coverage requirements. As one might imagine, adding 20X or more pieces of hardware to a network generates significant operating expenses (OpEx). Guest blog written by Paul Miller.
Where are the opportunities in 5G?
The market for 5G is expected to be over $72bn by 2030, with large scale roll-out of infrastructures and rapid adoption of 5G devices and services. Many characteristic benefits promised by 5G will operate at high frequency (above 26GHz), i.e. mmWave 5G. Such high frequency requires new materials and different device design.
Advance 5G deployment with VIAVI RF field test portfolio
Viavi Solutions has unveiled significant enhancements to its RF field test portfolio to enable service providers, network equipment manufacturers (NEMs) and contractors to accelerate the deployment and management of both 5G and legacy LTE radio access networks (RAN).
5G network challenges: how to build out complex networks
5G network challenges will be categorically more complex than anything currently in production. Many factors contribute to this situation. For one, 5G networks promise to be incredibly dense compared to 4G. A single standard 4G macrocell can serve an area of approximately 25 square kilometers, whereas, with 5G, it will take 20 or more cells, with their respective antennas and RAN hardware, to cover the same area. When 5G traffic goes indoors, the...
