Massive Investment Into Spectrum by Mobile Operators
The value of spectrum licenses held by mobile operators across the globe is estimated to be well over one trillion USD. US operators invested over $80B USD in the first phase of the C-Band auction (Jan 2021) to obtain critical spectrum for their 5G NR networks. RF interference sources are severely degrading this vital resource. Categories of RF interference include external interference (e.g., bi-directional amplifiers, RFID scanners, CATV cable egress), PIM interference, faulty hardware, TDD self-interference, cross border interference, interference carried by tropospheric ducting and RAN-generated interference. RF interference reduces network capacity, degrades quality of experience for subscribers, elevates operational costs and diminishes spectrum value.
A New and Novel Approach to Address RF Interference
Mobile operators now have the opportunity to apply state-of-the-art automated AI-driven RF interference analytics to address RF interference in new and far more effective ways. Learn about the highly innovative solution that leading mobile operators have been deploying rapidly and seamlessly across their multi-vendor 5G NR, LTE and UMTS networks to drive their RF interference mitigation processes and maximize the value of their licensed spectrum and RAN infrastructure.
Critical Business Need for Clear Spectrum
Operators lack visibility into harmful RF interference. Existing processes for addressing interference are cumbersome, manually intensive, and involve a lot of trial and error while the operator struggles to identify and mitigate sources. Without advanced automated analysis, the resulting degradations to network capacity and increased OPEX from RF inference is having a material adverse impact on an operator’s business, costing mobile operators billions of dollars per annum.
RF Interference Challenges Intensify with 5G NR
To meet expectations with this massive new investment into 5G NR networks, new RF interference challenges must be addressed quickly:
Legacy devices (e.g., WiMAX) transmitting inside the 5G NR band allocations will generate additional external interference.
Increased PIM Interference:
As new 5G NR bands are added, the amount of PIM interference events will increase on UMTS, LTE and 5G NR channels
5G NR TDD channels suffer from severe self-interference during periods of tropospheric ducting.
Cross Border Interference:
Challenges with band allocations, synchronization and legacy equipment from neighboring countries including during periods of tropospheric ducting.
This interference will substantially impact the UL performance of 5G cells. Due to channel reciprocity applied for the DL channel estimation, the DL performance will also be substantially impacted.
