In this webinar, we introduce 5G New Radio (NR) beam management procedures at the physical layer.  Operation at millimeter-wave frequencies require beam management procedures for initial access in 5G NR. We will cover the stages of beam sweeping, beam measurement, beam determination and beam reporting for such a system.  We will also discuss differences in these procedures for Standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) modes.


Using reference designs from 5G and Phased Array System Toolboxes, we highlight

  • Initial access procedures including transmit/receive point (TRP) beam sweeping
  • UE-end beam sweeping to establish a beam pair link
  • Using synchronization signal blocks (SSB), for both azimuth and elevation plane sweeps
  • Transmit-end beam refinement using channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS) 

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
