There is a huge leap in the complexity of testing from 4G to 5G and then to 6G networks. With this increasing complexity of testing posed by 5G and open network environments, it is more challenging, time consuming and costly to test equipment and systems. Join this event to dig into the details of lab and manufacturing testing, field network testing and service assurance challenges and solutions.
This year's forum is now over. You can watch all of the sessions on-demand by getting your free pass.
What to Expect From the Forum
Through a variety of panel discussions, interviews and workshops, we will discuss:
Synchronization and timing in open, disaggregated networks
5G SA and network slicing
Managing a new RF environment
Passive versus active service assurance
5G device testing
Private networks and guaranteeing SLAs

Key Event Themes
Lab and manufacturing testing
As 5G deployments pick up pace, and the variety of 5G use cases evolves, the need for high quality, high performing devices which support the network and these new services grows too. We seek to explore the latest updates and solutions regarding quality assurance, meeting standards and regulations and getting devices to market faster to enable 5G at scale.
Field network testing
With new technologies, new frequencies and new equipment, testing the network can be as complex as designing it. We dig into the detail on topics such as preparing to deploy standalone 5G, the need for robust fiber testing, automated test solutions and tackling challenges such as PIM and RF interference.
As carriers look to deploy enterprise private networks, sometimes with hyper-specific requirements, service assurance becomes ever more critical. Consumers are also demanding more from their providers and so quality of the consumer’s experience also comes into play. Key stakeholders will come together to discuss the challenges of SLAs, QoS and the solutions which can help carriers ensure network quality and performance and achieve excellent customer service.
