The Communication System Architect’s Guide to 5G Physical Layer Modeling

Keysight's new white paper, The Communication System Architect's Guide to 5G Physical Layer Modeling, describes how to model and evaluate a next-generation communication system in combined multi-domain simulation environments. With complex analog and digital components, it is vital to model accurately to understand the behavior of the system. 

Electromagnetic Design in the Electronics Industry

Technology advancement in the electronic industry is unyielding but new trends will build on RF communications to drive new product functionality. Some examples include the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G mobile networks and automation/smart technology.

Addressing the 4G and 5G Backhaul Capacity Challenge with Air Division Duplexing

Achieving sufficient capacity to meet the forecast backhaul needs over the next few years will be a major challenge. This white paper describes the technique of Air Division Duplexing (ADD), which makes use of MIMO and spatial multiplexing techniques to achieve simultaneous transmission and reception of data on each carrier frequency, and has been shown to achieve full duplex data rates1 in excess of 1 Gb/s in a 28 MHz channel allocation2 in the microwave bands.

Evolutionary & Disruptive Visions Towards Ultra High Capacity Networks

With many groups now beginning to consider the drivers for 5th Generation wireless networks, this timely document includes contributions from 20 IWPC member organizations from around the world and aims to advance certain understandings and concepts for adoption in wireless systems to be deployed beyond the year 2020. This 89 page document covers a broad range of 5G topics with emphasis on mm-wave.
