There is an undisputable excitement around 5G deployment these days, as we see the technical world mostly concerned about field trials and product launching. The list of requirements and KPIs has exploded since the LTE days as it is now intended to cover multiple bands (FR1, FR2), multiple use cases (low latency, high throughput, increased reliability etc.), while the number of system parameters and configuration options has also clearly increased. Behind the scenes there is a constantly growing challenge on how to cover this entire broad range of targets with minimal time to market but at the same time with optimum cost efficiency. One answer to this is the evergreen Software Defined Radio paradigm which is now more appealing and more accessible than ever, giving the leverage of addressing in a quick time to market a great number of use cases, while still being able to track moving targets such as the always enhancing 3GPP standard without the cost burden of a new tape-out. This session brings an industry update from both hardware and software worlds on how this goal can be achieved while meeting the cost constraints.
