With the first implementable standard recently defined by 3GPP and its first showcase already in place, 5G is becoming a commercial reality. It is expected to profoundly revolutionise the utilisation of sub-6 GHz band and adapt millimetre waves for use in mobile communication. Reliable testing of devices which feature 5G, or any other related technologies, is indispensable.
As a result, carefully designed test probes will be required to fulfil the flexible testing demands 5G poses. Typical testing challenges and design issues associated with these high performance probes will be explored.
