While some companies may be claiming victory in the first heat of the 5G race, it’s clear the real winners will most surely come from the middle of the pack. Taking advantage of drafting in the path of telecom giants, nimbler competitors are making informed decisions and streamlining their approaches.
To make such headway, a number of companies are adopting the approach of rapid prototyping, testing, and deployment of network architectures enabled by nimble, self-programmable RF test devices. With a few of these devices, a laptop, a simple GUI, and a USB cord, designers are quickly confirming or denying various networking and signal management techniques and identifying the best components for their unique signal chains. They’re also discovering how to create lower-cost, lighter-weight ATE solutions that can be duplicated, trained, and deployed in various regions.
