Recorded 13th September 2022 The energy and utility sectors are going through a time of unprecedented change, driven largely by the drive for “net zero” and “smart grids”.  A shift towards renewable and more localised energy sources, coupled to a greater reliance on digital technology and automation, has transformed these industries. The sector is now actively envisioning how new wireless broadband communications technologies, and the cloud, can help them harness the power of the growing wave of connected devices and data. These technologies will replace traditional narrowband telemetry, tele-control and tele-protection systems, and enable utilities to move increased volumes of data...

5G, Radio Engineering, Recorded Webinar -

Webinar Recorded: 12th October 2021 Delivering ever-increasing data volumes to a growing customer base who are willing to accept mobile and nomadic broadband services places enormous strain on telecoms operators in terms of capacity requirements and network densification. New broadcast-based services and business models, as well as connected innovation and IoT, add to the challenges. A range of measures can be used to ease the pressure, and many have been the subject of ongoing development as part of the 4G LTE Radio. The introduction of 5G New Radio, however, has provided an opportunity to take a fresh look, optimise techniques, and,...

Webinar Recorded: 23rd September 2021 When planning a microwave link it is imperative to ensure there is sufficient clearance between the main bore of the radio signal and any obstacles along the radio path. There are various rules and guidelines defining what is meant by sufficient clearance - they may be set by a national spectrum management authority, in-house criteria, or recommended by a body such as the ITU-R. All of them, however, require the radio planner to apply the relevant k factor associated with the chosen clearance criteria and model. It is therefore paramount that the radio planner fully...
