The newest 802.11 standard, 802.11ax, is taking things one step further by promising to deliver that connectivity faster, over the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band by utilizing OFDM, up to 1024 QAM, and multi-user MIMO. Read about its measurement challenges and solutions.
Anokiwave Inc., an innovative company providing highly integrated core IC solutions for mmW markets and AESA based solutions, announced the worldwide release of the world’s first commercially available Ka-Band transceiver quad core IC for 5G communications markets.
NI, the provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announcedtoday the world’s first software defined radio (SDR) for the millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum. The new NI mmWave Transceiver System is a full transceiver that can transmit and/or receive wide-bandwidth signals at an unprecedented 2 GHz real-time bandwidth, covering the spectrum in the E-band, 71 to 76 GHz.
ABI Research, the leader in transformative technology innovation market intelligence, projects that mobile broadband operators will reap 5G revenues of $247 billion in 2025 with North America, Asia-Pacific, and Western Europe being the top markets. Specifically, network operators, vendors, and standards bodies will finalize technical details concerning the millimeter wave by 2020, with rollout ramping up afterward.
Keysight's new white paper, The Communication System Architect's Guide to 5G Physical Layer Modeling, describes how to model and evaluate a next-generation communication system in combined multi-domain simulation environments. With complex analog and digital components, it is vital to model accurately to understand the behavior of the system.
Technology advancement in the electronic industry is unyielding but new trends will build on RF communications to drive new product functionality. Some examples include the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G mobile networks and automation/smart technology.
Achieving sufficient capacity to meet the forecast backhaul needs over the next few years will be a major challenge. This white paper describes the technique of Air Division Duplexing (ADD), which makes use of MIMO and spatial multiplexing techniques to achieve simultaneous transmission and reception of data on each carrier frequency, and has been shown to achieve full duplex data rates1 in excess of 1 Gb/s in a 28 MHz channel
allocation2 in the microwave bands.
