Webinar – 5G NR Focus in 3GPP Releases 15/16: CA and Low-Power Features
Hear directly from key industry players in the mobile ecosystem and discover how MediaTek collaborated with Keysight to explore new 5G NR opportunities and speed up their time-to-market: 5G NR Focus in 3GPP Rel-15/16: Carrier Aggregation & Low-Power Features
This presentation provides an overview of two major feature enhancements in 5G NR Rel-15/16, focused on carrier aggregation (CA) and user equipment (UE) power saving. Coverage and capacity are important aspects in 5G, especially in the early stage of deployment. CA is a way to increase the radio interface transmission bandwidth which increases user throughput, utilizes scattered spectrum, and improves load balancing between carriers. Meanwhile, with the accelerated evolution in UE and data connectivity demands for different types of traffic and applications, reducing UE power consumption has become a hot topic in the industry.
Key learnings: 5G NR Multi-Carrier Deployment Trends: Overview of several multi-carrier features in Rel-15/16 Benefits of Carrier Aggregation Rel-16 features for Dual Connectivity and Carrier Aggregation Power Saving Optimizations: Rel-15 power saving techniques: inactive state, dynamic BWP switch, Cross-slot scheduling Overview of Rel-16 enhancements: Wake-up signal, Fast L1 adaptation, UE-assisted Information
