Optimizing Sub-6 GHz 5G RF and Antenna Performance

As demand continues growing for faster speeds and expanded service, 5G sub-6 GHz applications are becoming increasingly relevant. This webinar will discuss how implementing antenna metrics and design techniques can improve the overall RF system performance.

In addition, this presentation will cover:

  • The sub-6GHz frequency bands for cellular, M2M, and IoT devices
  • The complexities of antenna tuning for 5G applications
  • How beam steering can benefit communication system performance

This webinar is being recorded and will be available on-demand following the live presentation.

Time: August 12, 2020 8:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada) / 4:00 PM GMT+1
