Before 5G can deliver on its promises and quality of service (QoS) metrics, wireless systems designers and engineers must overcome sizable challenges. Engineers need to solve the complexities across the spectrum: impeding device, network and data center design.

5G connectivity is the next technological revolution. This pervasive, ultrafast computer network will connect billions of devices with data on-demand. It will drive economic expansion in many sectors, spawn new products and services, and transform lives as we know it. Yet, before 5G can deliver on its promises and quality of service (QoS) metrics, wireless systems designers and engineers must overcome sizable challenges. Engineers need to solve the complexities across the spectrum: impeding device, network and data center design.

Design and development of 5G is huge undertaking. The good news is that complete virtual prototyping and simulation can substantially reduce the cost and accelerate the design process. A standard industry practice is to front-load simulation at each step of design and development. Wireless systems engineers rely heavily on simulation doing as much work in the front-end virtual world as possible. In fact, virtual design and verification is much quicker than building the real hardware/device.

It is also easier to change or refine a design as it continually improves. Engineers study designs at different levels of abstraction from component designs to system level. Having design and simulation tightly coupled, integral parts of the product development process from design to spec allows companies to have a reliable 5G products in market on time.
