Introduction to 5G Radio Planning

5G radio planning is a key part of deploying and optimizing any 5G network. This short course is designed to introduce the methodology employed during 5G radio planning. As such, it includes the various challenges related to the new 5G radio interface. In so doing, key aspects of 5G spectrum planning, 5G radio propagation, propagation modelling and the 5G link budget are discussed. Finally, the course summarizes the main factors which impact upon a 5G cell’s peak rate and capacity.
