Traceability of PIM measurements for 5G-Technology

Am 12. May 2022 veröffentlicht

Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport (BMDV), the 5G Real Lab pursues the research and lively presentation of practical needs and possible applications of 5G as a key technology in the context of a Smart Region/Smart City.

One important aspect of the project is the technology assessment. Due to the use of new frequency ranges and the increased receiver sensitivity with 5G, passive intermodulation (PIM) will continue to gain relevance as a source of interference. Locating and avoiding such sources of interference is essential for the reliable functioning of the mobile network. For this purpose, a traceability of the PIM measurements to the International System of Units (SI units) is being developed, which on the one hand reduces the measurement uncertainty and on the other hand enables the measurements and methods to be compared.
