A Free, Thought-Leadership Roundtable: Thursday, June 29, 2017 • 12:00 p.m. ET

With the 5G deployment on the horizon, several key technologies need to be in place including, synchronization. Synchronization is a key technology for the correct operation of the telecommunication network. As 5G networks inch closer, there is a need for very accurate distribution of phase and time synchronization.

In this Engineering Live, we will discuss:

The trends in the wireless networks,
Synchronization for 5G networks,
Support synchronization in the 5G radio access,
The services driving tight synchronization, and
Standards bodies working on synchronization requirements for 5G.
