Title: DAY 1 KEYNOTE: The Two Pillars of 5G: Energy and Spectral Efficiency

Date: September 10, 2019

Time: 7am PT / 10am ET

Sponsored by: Rohde & Schwarz

Presented by: Corbett Rowell, Senior Development Expert in OTA and Antenna Measurement Solutions at Rohde & Schwarz

The session discusses the twin pillars of 5G deployment by operators: spectral efficiency (capacity) vs. energy efficiency (cost). We try to answer the question of how to increase network capacity while at the same time decreasing the network cost for both 5G FR1 and FR2 wireless networks. We explore both traditional methods of increasing capacity as well as newer methods based on old radar technology that can increase capacity while decreasing costs.
