Overcoming T&M, Assurance Challenges in 5G Networks

For all of the benefits that 5G promises, operators are faced with a stark reality: 5G networks introduce challenges not experienced with other iterations of cellular technology. Spectrum issues, network densification, network slicing and virtualization are just a few of the complications that 5G operators face as they plan and build networks. As a result, operators need to incorporate assurance and test and measurement of networks now and throughout subsequent stages of 5G deployment.

This white paper will discuss:

  • The extensive differences in how 5G networks are designed, as well as the types of applications and services that are slated to run across those networks
  • The ways in which the application of assurance, test and measurement differ from network buildouts of the past and how such solutions can benefit operators as they deploy 5G
  • Examine important areas of focus and possible methodologies for 5G test, including 5G NR, Massive MIMO, beamforming, mmWave and multi-access edge computing
  • The impact of virtualization on 5G buildouts, including virtualization of radio, core, Control & User Plane Separation (CUPS) and network slicing
  • How automation will impact 5G buildouts, with a focus on service agility, DevOps, service assurance, service orchestration and analytics
  • How assurance, test and measurement can be utilized to generate revenue and create new services on 5G networks

Do you agree public funding should be used to support mobile operators to more broadly deploy Open RAN?
