An Introduction to the 5G Frequency Spectrum

Posted by Peter Matthews on Aug 26, 2020 9:15:00 AM

Planning is in the works for Fifth Generation (5G) communication systems that will enable a hundred-fold increase in user data-rates – and with this increase comes a need for significant increases in bandwidth over what is currently available. Why does bandwidth follow when we ask for an increase in data rates?

Building 5G Small Cells Without Compromising Performance

Posted by Tim Brauner on Aug 5, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Before small cell technology took its place as a central component to realizing the promise of 5G networks, it played an important role in helping to improve the coverage and capacity of 4G. These mini base stations could be installed in discrete locations like on buildings or streetlights and became part of heterogeneous networkstogether with traditional macro base stationsto improve service in high-traffic locations such as sporting events and concert venues. In this pursuit, small cells have proven valuable for extending signal penetration and increasing wireless density and these small, lightweight devices will continue to be a key technology for the data-intensive transition to 5G.

From the 1920s to the 2020s – Bandwidth Has Always Been King

Posted by Peter Matthews on May 13, 2020 8:00:00 AM

Over time, the telephone replaced the telegraph, and now cellular and voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) technology are replacing the landline. However, as more communication is done wirelessly and over the Internet, we are becoming more interested in increased bandwidth. This is because bandwidth places a limit on how quickly we can send information through a channel such as an optical fiber or a section of the radio spectrum.
