Topic:

Harnessing the Full RF Bandwidth for 5G

Abstract:

5G is the fifth-generation wireless technology for digital cellular networks that began wide deployment in 2019.  A full nationwide 5G deployment in South Korea has been completed using the 3.5GHz band in a 32 transmitters per box, or 32T configuration.  And in 2020, deployments are extending globally with the biggest happening in China and United States with systems that may comprise of 16T, 32T, and 64T depending on use case.  These solutions enable massive multiple inputs and multiple outputs, aka mMIMO.

The frequency spectrum of 5G is divided into low-band, mid-band and millimeter waves. Low band uses a frequency range like its predecessor 4G, also called 5G lite (typically less than 1 GHz). 5G mid-band is the most widely deployed, now in over 20 networks, with frequencies ranging from 2.4 to 4.2 GHz. The third band (mm wave) is the fastest with frequencies between 24 to 72 GHz. Lower frequency has wide coverage area, good building penetration, but low peak data speed. Conversely higher frequency range has low coverage area, poor building penetration, but high data rates. This wide range of frequencies and power level requirements demand a wide variety of solutions in a small form factor.  

This talk will describe the challenges that carriers face in building out their network infrastructure and also describe the challenges that the device and component manufactures are facing in the 5G deployment including the power/cost challenges of delivering very wide bandwidth high data rate 5G signals.
