Technical Education Webinar Series
Title: 5G: Ready or Not, Here it Comes
Date: November 28, 2017
Time: 8am PT / 11am ET
Sponsored by: National Instruments
Presented by: Sarah Yost, Product Marketing Manager
A week after this webinar, the 3GPP will be meeting to solidify the first phase of 5G specifications. The big unknown for 5G has started to shift from what 5G will be, to how will 5G be implemented. Turning 5G standards and ideas into functional commercial products creates a whole new set of challenges ranging from designing new ICs with integrated antennas for mmWave communications to new test methodology to test systems with integrated phased arrays or massive numbers of antenna elements. This webinar aims to share an update on where 5G is now as the 3GPP prepares to meet and a look into future challenges from both a business and technology point of view.
