5G impact on wireless device testing requirements

Few technologies have arrived with more fanfare and greater promise than 5G. But delivering on those promises won’t be quick and easy. View this on-demand webinar to learn about 5G application-driven network performance requirements, key focus areas for testing, both expected and unexpected test challenges, and how to assure you’re prepared for what lies ahead.

Leading the way forward for 5G device testing

Few technologies have arrived with more fanfare and greater promise than 5G. Yet given its complexity and challenges, the 5G ramp will demand agility. Device test solutions must be flexible. Spirent’s 5G device test capabilities are built on National Instruments’ world class software defined radio platform. It’s a collaboration providing future-flexible systems that can readily adapt as 5G standards evolve.

Mobile Device

Accelerate 5G mobile device deployment

Help your customers move to 5G faster with Spirent 8100 5G. The industry-leading solution brings comprehensive performance testing of mobile smartphone and IoT devices for video, data, voice and location technologies with fully automated, customizable turn-key solutions for carrier acceptance, standards-based testing and R&D.

Location positioning and 5G

Location and positioning technologies are some of the most interesting areas of advancement in 5G. It is critical to test these new technologies to ensure the location accuracy of 5G devices and services, as well as determine any impact to already-proven 4G positioning technologies, which will still be critically relied upon in the initial stages of 5G implementation. Read Spirent’s white paper to learn more.
