RIS – Shaping the Radio Channel for Best Connectivity
1pm Eastern/ 6pm UK/ 7pm CET
About This Webinar
There has been much conversation and confusion about RIS, or Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces. While they will be late to the party in 5G, they could form an invaluable piece of the puzzle for delivering the kind of consistent coverage that governments and end-users alike are crying out for in the next generation… provided it’s good enough.
This webinar, featuring Rohde & Schwarz’ Heinz Mellein, will act as a masterclass into the capabilities and promise of RIS, as well as a chance to put your questions to the expert.
Join us to find out what you need to know about RIS.
