The ENCQOR 5G SME Technology Development Program (5G SDP) partners Ontario-based small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with ENCQOR 5G Anchor Firms on 5G technology development projects. Areas of technology interest are defined in Challenge Statements submitted to OCE by the ENCQOR 5G Anchor Firms and posted to the OCE website on a rolling basis.
With the advent of 5G networks, optimum network planning, especially for indoor environments, will be paramount to achieve the benefits of this new technology and offer the end user the best experience in terms of coverage, throughput, and latency.
The project will research and implement a methodology to extract critical RF parameters (RSRP, SINR, rank, etc.) from the 3GPP radio of a UE (mobile handset, tablet) and have it available to be utilized by an existing web application product Ericsson Indoor Planner (EIP) to optimize the simulation models and calculate the 5G network topology, node placement, and performance predictions.
