5G Positioning and Location Services Training and Certification
This course on 5G Positioning and Location services will cover every topic that is required to understand this concept completely. 5G indoor positioning uses the wireless communications infrastructure. The 5G device sends a signal to nearby 5G access points with a timestamp. 5G positioning is a natural component in many anticipated 5G industrial use cases and various verticals synch as logistics, smart factories, autonomous vehicles, localized sensing, digital twins, augmented and virtual reality, etc.
5G Positioning covers various use cases like eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband) in which it is expected that with some reasonable density in urban areas, 10m positioning accuracy can be achieved. For stationary users with access to GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) like GPS, positioning with a fusion of 5G and GNSS can be always a better option than GNSS alone. 5G device positioning was enabled by an overlay 4G network, providing 4G positioning reference signals to measure on. Various features of 5G NR positioning include the delay error variance decreasing in the order of the square of the bandwidth as the bandwidth increases. In this, the received power is inversely proportional to all estimate variances. In NR, received power can be increased by beamforming. NR provides five different choices for subcarrier spacing: 15kHz, 30kHz, 60kHz, 120 kHz, and 240kHz.
