Keysight, UCSD Collaborate to Prove Viability of 5G Communication with Record-Setting Data Rates

Keysight Technologies Inc., with the University of California San Diego (www.ece.ucsd.edu) announced the world’s longest bidirectional phased-array link in the 60 GHz band. At a link distance of 300 m, the 32-element array achieved a data rate of greater than 2 Gbps over all scan angles up to ±45 degrees. Data rates were 4 Gbps at 100 m and 500 Mbps at 800 m over most scan angles. Initial tests by a leading wireless provider suggest the system can deliver content to eight homes at a time at up to 300 m.
