On Demand: How Simulation Enables 5G Connectivity in the Industrial Environment
Learn how robust electromagnetic simulation and industry workflows are used to design and optimize 5G networks for smart, reliable and safe manufacturing environments.
Modern high-tech factories are large, complex and dynamic environments which require ultra-reliable high performance wireless communication networks to make them “smart”. Substantial challenges are also posed by having to accommodate multiple communication standards, operating across multiple frequency bands – 5G for example has sub-6 GHz and mm-wave frequency specifications. Catering for multiple standards may result in interference between radio systems.
Electromagnetic simulation is an essential tool for the design of a robust wireless communication infrastructure. This virtual workshop will discuss the simulation techniques and workflows required for antenna and array design, and for analyzing and resolving the interference issues. Different simulation techniques are required, depending on the application. When considering placement of antennas in large environments like the factory, hybrid-solver techniques are required for dealing with challenging multi-scale problems.
In addition, the workshop will demonstrate how to evaluate human exposure to electromagnetic fields to help meet applicable standards and ensure a safe working environment in which electromagnetic exposure is kept below legal limits.
