Advanced Antenna Architectures and RF Semiconductors at the Intersection of SATCOM and 5G Technologies
The demand for high speed, broadband data connectivity continues unabated, and we are seeing revolutionary changes in fixed wired networks such as HFC and Fiber along with terrestrial wireless networks—from 4G to 5G—in order to meet this demand. As such, it was only a matter of time before we saw the same transformation in satellite networks. The ever increasing need for high-speed mobile Internet services, rural/remote Internet access and ubiquitous IoT connectivity are driving significant growth in the VSAT and SATCOM markets.
5G Wireless: MArket Opportunities and Technical Challenges, from Sub-6 GHz to Millimeter Wave
The evolution to 5G mobile networks continues to accelerate, promising breakthrough gains in wireless throughput and capacity. In the near term, we’ll see sub-6 GHz wireless infrastructure begin to be deployed to bridge the bandwidth gap between existing 4G LTE networks and future millimeter wave (mmW) 5G implementations that leverage frequencies significantly higher than 6 GHz.
