Ensuring the promises of reliable and efficient communications brings new challenges to the design of 5G products. 5G connectivity requires high throughput, low latency, and exceptional coverage at a reasonable cost, all while reducing energy consumption. As networks and applications grow, the precise simulation of antennas in their environment is the key to developing the next generation of broadband products. Altair 5G simulation solutions support and enable the innovation and deployment of wireless connectivity technology improving communication, assuring compatibility, and reducing energy consumption and emission.
Creating a dedicated campus network with unified connectivity, optimized services, and secure communication within a specific area is a challenge for private network operators. To deliver the increased speed, low latency, and other benefits promised by 5G, telecom system integrators, engineers, and consulting companies must have efficient 5G development tools.
Altair provides integrated simulation of 5G antennas and 5G networks, that help to understand the use case, define the requirements for the 5G infrastructure, and create a usage plan to apply for the frequency spectrum. Taking a holistic simulation approach, campus network planners avoid interferences upfront and prevent radio wave leakage in surrounding areas.
How can you actively drive the network license application process, to realize 5G applications quicker? Altair enables optimized 5G network planning in complex environments like urban outdoor-indoor scenarios. The possibility of exact representation from single antennas up to complete systems interacting with their infrastructure and environment allow a unique prediction quality and efficient network realization.
The openness of Altair’s 5G network simulation tools allows for a smooth integration into existing planning environments. With integrated empirical wave propagation models, we can help accelerate the network license application process.
The rollout of 5G communication networks and 6G networks on the horizon promise to be a boon for telecommunications companies and the manufacturing industry globally. Faster speeds will result in higher data rates for users, perhaps as much as ten times higher than 4G capabilities, using the 3.5 GHz frequency bands for area-wide services and the 26-28 GHz bands for high data rate hotspots. How will antenna manufacturers, wireless equipment manufacturers, automobile manufacturers and suppliers, and wireless operators rise to meet these challenges? In this guide, we’ll investigate the various electromagnetic and network planning simulation solutions Altair offers.
Industry 4.0 has led companies to investigate the automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices using modern smart technologies via Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) making agricultural and mining equipment, trucks, and other heavy industrial assets smarter via effective connectivity solutions.
In this webinar we showcase Altair’s electromagnetic simulation solutions, which uniquely combine antenna design and wireless connectivity for a broad array of communication technologies, including among others, 5G, IoT, WiFi and RFID. As the trusted solution for smart device manufacturers around the world, Altair's electromagnetic solutions shorten development cycles for higher-performing products by accurately simulating the antenna(s) performance within the physical device and at the same time the performance of the device within the wireless network. The same solution at a communication system level is also used by leading organizations to analyze and design wireless networks, including the effect of the antennas, in complex scenarios like indoor, urban and rural
The 4th industrial revolution or the digital enterprise will re-build the business models in various industries through connectivity. The drivers for 5G NR in industrial IoT (IIoT) networks are (i) increased productivity, (ii) digital transformation through wireless technology and (iii) the use of private networks. The industrial IoT (IIoT) network will be scalable in connectivity, and number of devices and will be designed to deliver optimal performance for all industrial applications using key LTE and 5G NR features like URLLC, mMTC, 5G positioning, time sensitive communications (TSC) and to a lesser degree eMBB. This presentation begins with an overview, use cases and requirements for IIoT. The presentation discusses the foundation for URLLC in NR which was laid out in 3GPP Rel 15, mainly in support of IIoT, and URLLC enhancements in Rel-16, NR Positioning (Rel-16), TSC (Rel-16) and a version of NR known as NR-Light which is planned to be introduced in Rel 17. NR-Light aims to address use cases that cannot be met by NR eMBB, URLLC or mMTC. The system performance for an indoor ray traced factory using key 5G NR features like URLCC and TSC is presented.
