5G Stand Alone (SA) Beam Management
July 5, 2019

In this article, I will explain the Beamforming technique in 5G to compensate for path loss especially in the mmWave spectrum range. As the range of mmWaves is between 30 GHz and 300 GHz, a wavelength is between 1 millimeter and 10 millimeters and this is the intensive motive for Beamforming. Beamforming Definition The beamforming […]

What Is Voice over New Radio (VoNR)?
June 21, 2019

As the VoLTE adoption cycle, it took the industry a few years to plan, test, and commercialize new voice services, and I believe VoNR will follow a similar timeline. And since 4G is the foundation for 5G NR deployments, I expect VoLTE to remain the 5G voice solution for many years to come. 5G NSA […]

What Is the Difference between Static and Dynamic TDD?
May 24, 2019

Duplexing is one of the most important factors that impact the performance of 5G networks in terms of its wide-area coverage. 5G NR gives support to multiple duplex modes, that includes static TDD, FDD, and flexible duplexing. It is expected that 3.5GHz TDD is the first spectrum for early 5G deployments. Static TDD, the UL/DL […]

Everything You Need To Know about Beamforming
May 10, 2019

In this article, I’ll start with its motivation. Then I’ll answer the question: What is Beamforming? And also discuss its types, especially Hybrid Beamforming. Beamforming Motivation: The 5G main goals are to achieve higher data rates, lower latency network accesses, and support and fix different use cases. With higher data rates, the need for wider […]

My Talk at 5G MENA: Preparing the Network for 5G and AI
April 12, 2019

5G MENA is one of the largest talked-about events in the MENA region that focuses on advancing and commercializing 5G networks. This year it was held in Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, from 7 to 9 April 2019. It was my first time to attend this event and it was very interesting and informative experience.  This […]

Artificial Intelligence for 5G
March 21, 2019

Introduction The application of 5G wireless communication systems is expected to begin in 2020. With new projections, new technologies, and new network architectures, traffic management for 5G networks will show significant technical challenges. In recent years, AI technologies, especially ML technologies, have shown considerable success in many application domains, suggesting their future potential to solve […]

5G Release 15 All Features
January 25, 2019

At this article, I’ll give you an overview of 5G Release 15 features and the process to get further information for each feature from 3GPP website. 5G is similar to 4G technology in the sense that it is an evolving standard, which is planned for and created by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and […]

5G 3GPP NR Frame Structure
January 11, 2019

Introduction The 5G is expected to fulfill the needs and business contexts of 2020 and more. It is expected to enable a fully mobile and connected society, related to the huge growth in connectivity and density/volume of traffic that will be required in the near future to provide and guarantee: Very high throughput (1 Gbps or more), to support […]
