5G RF Planning and Design Part 3: 5G Link Budget
5G_230d | On-Demand | 5G Access | 2
Course Duration: 4 hours
This is the third course in a four-course set of self-paced courses encompassing 5G RF Planning and Design. In this course, you will learn about the components of a 5G link budget. You will also learn the impacts of mid-band frequencies and different types of 5G use cases on the link budget. Each course in this four-course set can stand on its own or can be combined with other courses as necessary to meet your learning objectives.
Intended Audience
RF planning and design and performance optimization engineers
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
■ Identify components of 5G link budget for different services in low, mid, high bands
■ Describe the uplink and downlink channels and signals in 5G
■ Calculate 5G link budgets for eMBB and URLLC
