Whether it’s a matter of national security or commercial success, a space plane or a sensor, brilliant people regularly refrain from trumpeting their astounding scientific achievements. It's not always easy or popular, but it's necessary, and I tip my hat top you, secret-keepers.
NR is billed as a more capable air interface, and will need to operate in both the frequencies below 6 GHz and above 24 GHz (mmWave) with a frame structure supporting both TDD and FDD, as well as operate in both licensed and unlicensed spectrum.
How much do the FCC’s RF spectrum auctions foster competition, benefit consumers, or spur development of new components and technologies?
As machine-to-machine and Internet of Things technologies grow congruent with daily life, satellite-based IoT is increasingly relevant to the mix. Given that IoT devices are primarily used to eliminate the need for human interface, as well as provide real-time automated monitoring and control across distances, it’s often essential to enable its functioning in remote regions that lie outside the range of terrestrial network coverage.
The world's largest showcase of 5G technology got underway at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games in South Korea this week. Several 5G use cases are being demonstrated at the Games, ranging from driverless shuttles and ultrafast video streaming to wildlife management.
Samsung is planning to become the third major player in the 5G modem chip market when it reveals its first 5G modem chip for smartphones in the second half of this year.
At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Qualcomm says it is adopting a comprehensive approach with 5G, including developing RF chips and modems to support the first 5G phones hitting store shelves by 2019.
Major U.S. carriers made a slew of announcements involving their ambitious 5G rollouts for the new year. Verizon said it has chosen Samsung to supply it with pre-standard 5G equipment for its first 5G service in Sacramento, sometime during the latter half of 2018.
Anokiwave recently announced the first product in a new family of second generation 5G Silicon Quad Core ICs that enable 3GPP compliant base stations with the worldwide release of the 39 GHz AWMF-0156 IC.
An off-the-wall new study by Brown University researchers shows that terahertz frequency data links can bounce around a room without dropping too much data. The results are good news for the feasibility of future terahertz wireless data networks, which have the potential to carry many times more data than current networks.
In two years, the world may see a revolutionary solution to the century-old approach of allocating bands for specific use on the radio frequency spectrum. Vanderbilt may help solve the problem.
Carnegie Technologies, the industry’s leading wireless connectivity solutions provider, announced today that it has joined the Texas 5G Alliance as a founding member, helping the new organization to advocate for the next generation of high-speed wireless technologies required to meet the demands of smart cities throughout Texas.
LG Electronics (LG) is partnering with HERE Technologies (HERE), a global provider of digital mapping and location services, to offer a next-generation telematics solution for autonomous vehicles.
Ericsson is announcing that it has signed agreements for credit facilities with the Nordic Investment Bank (NIB) for USD 220 million, maturing in 2023, and AB Svensk Exportkredit (SEK) for USD 150 million, maturing in 2025.
5G networks need to be designed to offer more capacity and flexibility while lowering overall systems operation expenses. This paper discusses various test solutions that can address current and future requirements for antenna verification, including conducted and over-the-air test methods.
Proposals for next-gen 5G waveforms are converging towards using cyclic-prefix orthagonal frequency division multiplexing (CP-OFDM) for 5G New Radio (NR). CP-OFDM is used by LTE and ranks best on compatibility with multi-antenna technologies, high spectral efficiency, and low implementation complexity.
Anritsu recently hosted a major network equipment manufacturer (NEM) at our factory in Morgan Hill, CA USA to perform some early validation of their 28 GHz 5G radios. The application is to use radios for 5G fixed wireless access to compete with fiber to the home. The NEM required the use of the Anritsu Spectrum Master™ MS2720T spectrum analyzer to test the performance of these next-generation 28 GHz 5G radios in a coverage mapping exercise. The spectrum analyzer was used to measure key parameters of the NEM prototype radio in a variety of real-world environments.
Qorvo is powering numerous 5G network field trials and now offers the world's first 5G mobile front end. The company is helping shape the global 5G standard as a platform for a new era of connectivity. They deliver core RF technologies and innovative products that will enable 5G end to end, from wireless infrastructure to mobile devices. Partnering with customers, carriers and standards bodies, Qorvo will bring the 5G vision to life.
The key to improving energy efficiency lies, fundamentally, in the use of active antennas. However, duplex operation of cellular phones greatly distorts the desired performance of active antennas. To correct this, one must deploy self-diplexed antennas.
