The Critical Role of Timing and Synchronization in 5G TDD Deployments
Date / Time: Wednesday, January 27, 2021, 11:00 am New York / 4:00 pm London
Overview:
 
sponsored by

Synchronization is one of the most critical functions of a communication system. In 5G networks, the widespread use of Time Division Duplex (TDD), where both uplink and downlink transmission are on the same frequency, the chance of harmful interference is higher than in classic Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) systems. As a result, we see more stringent requirements for timing and synchronization for both TDD-LTE and 5G-NR.

Attend this webinar to expand your understanding of the relationship of TDD, timing and synchronization and frame synchronization especially for 5G TDD deployments.

Topics covered include:

  1. Why TDD plays a much more important role in 5G
  2. Implications of TDD spectrum on timing and synchronization
  3. Why current LTE synchronization methods may not be sufficient for optimal delivery of 5G advanced use cases
  4. Why failing to ensure slot and frame synchronization can cause significant network challenges in 5G
