C-band spectrum: what it means for accelerating 5G deployments


Danny Sleiman

Product Line Manager

Danny currently holds the position of Product Line Manager for EXFO’s 5G Transport and RF division, with responsibility for supporting service providers worldwide throughout their network test and measurement activities. His area of expertise spans mobile fronthaul and backhaul technologies including CPRI/eCPRI, Cloud RAN, and Ethernet/IP. Danny has previously worked as a hardware engineer for Extenway Solutions. He also gathered technical insight as a support services representative for IBM. Danny received his bachelor degree in electrical engineering from École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), Montreal, Canada.

The newly available C-band frequencies are considered ideal for 5G as they strike the perfect balance between coverage and throughput. As those frequencies weren’t available when 5G was first introduced, operators are now realigning their investments to focus on C-band in an effort to offer a quicker, better 5G experience to mobile users. This new mid-band spectrum enables mobile and broadband providers to expand their services, such as the ability to provide fast home internet service in rural areas via fixed wireless access (FWA). Yet, C-band imposes new RF technologies and requirements, making 5G network deployments complex for operators.

In this webinar, we will focus on some of the key technologies and important considerations for efficiently validating 5G C-band deployments—all through the lens of a real-world use case.

Key topics include:

  • what is C-band and what role does it play in 5G 
  • how will C-band help to accelerate 5G roll outs 
  • what are the new testing best practices for validating 5G C-band deployments throughout the network lifecycle
