5G Solutions


The race to 5G has begun. As 4G LTE networks continue to evolve, 5G New Radio (NR) technology has arrived, unlocking ultra-wide bands of traditional and millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum for fixed and mobile wireless networks. With its high capacity and ultra-low latency, 5G will enable new use cases, such as virtual reality, smart cities, machine learning, and advanced cyber-physical systems. Easing the transition from LTE, 5G NR can operate either independently or as a Non-Standalone (NSA) technology. The complex array of 5G technologies and deployment scenarios will require advanced antenna technologies, sophisticated device design, and careful field testing to deliver return on investment for both network operators and enterprise users.
