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.

The Communication System Architect’s Guide to 5G Physical Layer Modeling

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. 

Electromagnetic Design in the Electronics Industry

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.

Addressing the 4G and 5G Backhaul Capacity Challenge with Air Division Duplexing

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.
