Pillars of 5G Network
Massive MIMO: MIMO is a form of antenna technology that utilizes multiple antennas to enable signals that are traveling via different paths as a result of reflections.
3D- Beamforming Diversity: Beamforming is a technique that focuses a wireless signal towards a specific receiving device and reduces the interference of another nearby receiving device. The user sends a pilot signal towards the antenna and further, the antenna estimates the downlink channel and provide beamforming
Multimeter Wave (mmWave): 5G mmWave is a truly transformative technology that delivers the next-level performance and user experience beyond what is possible with traditional cellular networks. The electromagnetic spectrum of mmwave between (3-300GHz).
SDN – Software Defined Network/ Network Function Virtualization (NFV): Network slicing will give operators capabilities of creating different levels of services for different enterprise verticals, enabling them to customize their operations.
NOMA – Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access: In NOMA, multiple users can utilize nonorthogonal resources concurrently by yielding a high spectral efficiency while allowing some degree of multiple access interference at receivers.
Self-Configuration and Self-Optimization
5G native architecture supports any 5G Network Architecture Option by providing the service provider with the flexibility to choose any upgrade path that fits with their strategy. It also provides complete RAN orchestration, including self-configuration and self-optimization. All new radio units are self-configured by the software, reducing the need for manual intervention.
Benefits of Software Enable Platform In 5G
The network planning platform generates an overall site score that is used to determine whether to upgrade the cell site. By upgrading the cell site, and/or causing the site to be upgraded, the network planning platform improves overall service in the coverage area, thereby reducing latency rates, increasing available bandwidth and throughput, improving quality of service, all while allowing for a more efficient and effective allocation of resources.
