5G NR gNodeB deployments start as early as mid CY2019. Three key challenges:
Instantiating gNodeB and NGCore network functions in Telco Cloud
Next-generation fronthaul that enables gNodeB functional partitioning
Massive MIMO radios
A Xilinx session at Mobile World Congress (MWC) on March 1 titled “Enabling 5G NR Deployments” will discuss these three facets of 5G NR and strategies needed to overcome these challenges in three separate presentations. The presentation titles are:
5G NR acceleration in Telco Cloud
5G Transport Network and Packet Based Fronthaul
Implementing 5G NR Massive MIMO Radio
The three presenters are:
Awanish Verma, Senior Architect and Product Manager in Xilinx’s Communication Business Unit
Harpinder Matharu, Director of the Communications Business at Xilinx
Raghu Rao, Principal Architect and Director of Strategic Marketing for Wireless Products at Xilinx
The three presenters will also discuss real-world lessons learned while working with the supply chain—including operators, system vendors, semiconductor and software providers—in building 5G proofs of concepts and trial testbeds.
The hour-long event starts at 1:00pm and is being held in Hall 8.0, NEXTech Theatre F at MWC in Barcelona.
