NITRD / AWTP / FMG — Framework To Conduct 5G Testing

April 27, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - April 28, 2021 @ 1:00 PM

This 5G workshop is hosted in partnership with Networking & Information Technology Research & Development (NITRD)’s Advanced Wireless Test Platform (AWTP) and The Federal Mobility Group (FMG).

Tuesday, April 27th – 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 28th – 10:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The two half-day sessions will begin with a focus on the FMG work product – Framework To Conduct 5G Testing (Federal Mobility Group Unveils 5G Testing Framework | CIO.GOV). We will also conduct two moderated exercises walking through the process identified in the framework document, with two selected federal 5G use-cases: 1) Smart Warehouse and 2) Drones. We will wrap up the sessions with lessons learned on how this framework will be useful for: fed-to-fed and fed-to-commercial uses, testbed overviews from industry and academia, and next steps.


  • Provide an overview of the process (“How to use the framework to build a test capability”) as well as the testing framework modules / elements in the 5G testing framework whitepaper, needed to conduct 5G testing for different use cases.
  • Learn about federal 5G use cases and requirements from key stakeholders.
  • Hear from the testbed vendor and research community about the requirements / resources / approaches of building / operating a 5G infrastructure testbed (with discussion of the capabilities and main modules in RAN and core), specifically for two innovative 5G use cases: Smart Warehouse and UAV / Drone.
  • Learn more about the real-world methodologies of developing 5G testing cases with key performance indicators / testing metrics as well as of conducting 5G testing and experimentation with the 5G infrastructure testbed from the testbed vendors’ / researchers’ viewpoint. What are the challenges encountered?
  • Collaborate with 5G testbed vendor / researcher community to know more about how the 5G testbed framework whitepaper would add value to c) and d). What aspects of the whitepaper do the testbed vendors / researchers find most useful in helping to build a 5G testbed, develop 5G testing cases as well as conduct 5G testing? What are the lessons learned / gaps when applying the 5G testbed framework to real-world 5G testing and experimentation?
