Synchronization is one of the most critical functions of a communication system; however, in the context of 5G, especially for Time Division Duplex (TDD) where both uplink and downlink transmission is on the same frequency, the possibility of interference is much more significant. As a result, we see more stringent requirements for timing and synchronization for both TDD LTE and 5G-NR.
Download this handbook to gain an understanding of the relationship of TDD, timing and synchronization, and frame synchronization especially for 5G TDD deployments. Topics covered include:
- Spectrum Pros and Cons
- Understanding the TDD Slot Format
- Synchronization and Its Importance
- Challenges in 5G Fronthaul
- Testing Timing and Synchronization for 5G
