Delivering on QoE and Performance of 5G and 5G Advanced Networks Virtual Event, April 30th 2024 | 9 AM Eastern / 2 PM UK
Brought to you by
As networks continue to evolve from classical, monolithic architectures to cloud-native, disaggregated networks, the way we test networks needs to evolve too in this more software-centric environment, to ensure that new 5G-specific services can be guaranteed for end users.
Join Test & Measurement Forum on April 30th to explore the latest innovation in testing next-gen networks - from lab and manufacturing testing to field network testing and service assurance.
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 ◦ Next steps for Open RAN and RIC testing ◦ CI/CD testing ◦ Network security for next-gen networks ◦ Innovation in test solutions for virtualized and cloud-native networks ◦ 5G SA and network slicing progress ◦ Service assurance in the era of 5G, cloud, edge and AI ◦ 5G device testing ◦ PIM and interference hunting ◦ Private networks and guaranteeing SLAs ◦ Network optimization through AI and ML ◦ Digital twins for testing and network validation ◦ Maintaining KPIs and delivery QoE ◦ Integration and interoperability of NTNs ◦ Testing for next-gen networks and 6G developments
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, 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.
