5G beamforming technology brings focus to 5G networks

  • 5G networks are already revolutionizing the ways consumers live, work and play, and how enterprises are using emerging technologies to create the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

    As powerful a technology as 5G is, it still needs to be “reined in” sometimes.

    5G technology typically runs on wideband radio spectrum. That’s part of what allows it to carry such massive amounts of information at high speeds. It also means that 5G is prone to signal interference from other devices and may not always be able to penetrate into every location. That’s where beamforming technology comes in.

    NEC’s BeamPlanner™ help focus 5G signals to specific locations or devices and reduce interference, improving the reliability of the connection.

BeamPlanner™


BeamPlanner is a cloud-based planning, optimization and management software for beamforming antenna systems. Using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques to predict traffic patterns and optimize wireless capacity and coverage, BeamPlanner dynamically responds to traffic demand and directs RF energy toward hotspots while steering clear from signal interference.

BeamPlanner™
  • BeamPlanner integrates seamlessly with a wireless carrier’s existing RF planning workflows
  • Not limited to pre-defined beam patterns, BeamPlanner calculates optimal beam shapes for every scenario, making it possible to address a variety of use cases, including vertical beamforming to address coverage issues common in high-rise buildings
  • Controlling beam power and shape allows the signal to reach users behind thick walls without excess interference in the surrounding area
  • With full programmability, BeamPlanner enables a true multi-dimensional radio operation to maximize user experience at special events or provide capacity based on time-of-day movement of mobile users
  • Virtualization of the network RF functions enables management and optimization of multi-site deployments for improved end-user experience and increased overall network capacity
