Understanding 5G Coexistence Testing Requirements

Source: Keysight Technologies

In the near future, 5G New Radio (NR) will need to have ultra-fast download speeds, reliable low latency connections, and connectivity to billions of new IoT devices coming online. Spectrum is a key enabler to meeting these goals. However, today’s spectrum is already crowded and the introduction of new operating bands increases the potential for side-band interference, and sometimes overlap with previous spectrum allocations. Device designers must ensure that new 5G NR designs meet target performance and coexist with 4G, Wi-Fi, and other wireless communication systems sharing overlapping spectrum. This white paper discusses the issue of 5G spectrum coexistence issues and presents techniques for minimizing interference and operating in shared spectrum. Download the paper for more information.
