The newly available C-band frequencies are considered ideal for 5G as they strike the perfect balance between coverage and throughput. As those frequencies weren’t available when 5G was first introduced, operators are now realigning their investments to focus on C-band in an effort to offer a quicker, better 5G experience to mobile users. This new mid-band spectrum enables mobile and broadband providers to expand their services, such as the ability to provide fast home internet service in rural areas via fixed wireless access (FWA). Yet, C-band imposes new RF technologies and requirements, making 5G network deployments complex for operators.
In this webinar, we will focus on some of the key technologies and important considerations for efficiently validating 5G C-band deployments – all through the lens of a real-world use case.
Key topics include:
- What is C-band and what role does it play in 5G
- How will C-band help to accelerate 5G roll outs
- What are the new testing best practices for validating 5G C-band deployments throughout the network lifecycle
