5G in Perspective – A Pragmatic Guide to What’s Next

This paper examines the current state of LTE networks and the ways it could evolve to deliver a gigabit-per-second user experience. To accomplish this, the ecosystem will need to deliver 100x data throughput improvement. As a premier provider of RF front-end solutions, Skyworks believes we have the capability to enable this evolution using tools and techniques provided in the LTE specification leading up to the release of 5G. Additionally, this paper explores the impact of new 5G services from the mobile and fixed wireless perspective.
