DOCUMENTS AND FILES
Now that the need for ultra high capacity radios has become an unofficial requirement with a potentially large market backing it, the call for more spectrum savvy radios is in order. Traditional wisdom would have us assume that the legacy pure-play millimeterwave equipment vendors have this market clenched; however, every time there is a technology shift, as is occurring with the E-Band market, it opens the field up to new market leaders and a new competitive landscape. Thus, we have seen traditional microwave vendors throw their hats into the millimeterwave ring with various levels of commitment from OEMing/private labeling traditional millimeterwave vendors’ radios to designing their own millimeterwave radios.
