Presenter: Jung-ik Suh, Wireless Marketing Program Manager, Agilent Technologies
Wireless technologies have evolved to provide mobile users higher data rates on wireless networks with seamless connection anytime and anywhere. Commercial HSPA+ and LTE networks serve the Smartphone and tablet users with faster wireless data communication, and upcoming LTE-Advanced technology targets even faster speeds, with up to 1 Gbps and maximum downlink data rates. To achieve this dramatically faster wireless data communication, Carrier Aggregation, with the wider transmission bandwidths up to 100 MHz, enhanced Multi Input and Multi Output (MIMO) with up to 8x8 signal processing, and other advanced technologies, will play an important role. In addition, Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) will provide new and advanced network topology, which moves wireless networks closer to mobile devices with various approaches including lower power small cells and relay nodes. Remote Radio Heads, Distributed Antenna System and Wi-Fi can also be part of a HetNet, improving coverage, spectrum efficiency and data rates of the overall wireless service.
This webcast will introduce HetNet with a comparison to traditional networks, describe its benefits, present the different elements including various types of cells (macro, micro, pico and femto), Remote Radio Head, and Distributed Antenna System. The webcast will also address the test challenges of HetNet, and introduce design and test solutions.
Who should view this webcast?
Engineers and project managers interested in enhancing network performance and coverage with HetNet. Engineers and project managers involved in the development, verification and manufacturing of various types of networks including marco cell-base stations-, small cells, RRH and relays.
