The transition to 5G mobile is coming, driven by demand for higher-rate broadband at gigabits per second.
Such bandwidth is made possible via new radio spectrum at 24 GHz and above,
known as millimeter wave (mmWave)
because its wavelengths are shorter than existing mobile radio at 6 GHz and below.
While opening much wider bands, this new spectrum is also more attenuated by the atmosphere and other objects.
To overcome this attenuation, the propagated power can be aimed directly at each user
with beamforming, electronically controlling
an array of radios to focus energy only where it’s useful.
New open interfaces allow innovation across the radio access network, with mmwave radio modules connecting baseband bits
to broadband beams. Such systems comprise radio frequency integrated circuits, high-speed digital logic, and embedded system software.
Animation shows how phased arrays of antennas can steer beams to direct energy towards each user.
