Mobile network deployment is becoming ever more complex: many frequency bands, legacy technology support, 4G & 5G capacity and coverage demands and a range of different radio and antenna technologies.
Making the right choices, to ensure a highly efficient, cost effective network, that take into consideration the many conflicting demands is more critical than ever. This webinar summarises the main antenna technologies currently available for sub-6GHz bands, highlight key performance characteristics and provides practical advice to help ensure effective network deployment.
Radio Design’s founder – Eric Hawthorn – kicked things off by summarising key network requirements and the range of factors which is driving increasing complexity. Our guest speaker, Dr Anvar Tukmanov – Wireless Research Manager at BT, then introduced the key classes of practical antenna technology solutions (2×2 MIMO through to 64T64R MU mMIMO) and summarised key characteristics that will influence which technology might be most appropriate for a given requirement. Finally, Dr Martin Gostling – Managing Director of Radio Design – provided an overview of some common antenna deployment scenarios, and how they can support differing network performance requirements.
