Realizing the Benefits of 802.11ac Wave 2

In the years since the first wireless networking specification (802.11b) was ratified in 1999, Wi-Fi has expanded and evolved from a consumer amenity into a vital, mission critical tool for the enterprise. Today wireless mobility is near ubiquitous, and the number of devices connecting to wireless networks is expanding exponentially. 

5G mmWave Materials - Applications, Materials and Characterization

In order to deliver the large increase in wireless data transfer needed for the new 5G wireless standard, spectrum in the millimeter wave range will be needed. There is simply not enough available spectrum in the sub 6GHz range. The millimeter wave range is largely unregulated with wide chunks of available bandwidth making it ideal for data transfer applications.

This paper discusses absorber technologies and their uses in 5G mmWave systems. It identifies Laird absorbers for this frequency range and describes how they are tested and characterized.

Thermal and EMI Issues in Optical Modules

One of the goals of 5G is an order of magnitude increase in the quantity of data delivered. To support this increase the internet infrastructure must see upgrades in data transfer speed. Currently the bulk of internet traffic propagates via fiber optic lines. These are used due to their extremely wide bandwidth and low loss for data transmission over long distances. However, in order to perform necessary routing functions, this optical signal must be converted to an RF signal.

Learn how to solve common issues in high speed optical modules needed for 5G.

Public Safety Antenna Co-Engineered to Withstand High Power and Dissipate Heat

In 2010, a major government public safety agency set out to improve and enhance their current radio communications system. In order to continue to carry out their mission, improved interoperability between regions was necessary.  In cases where units from multiple regions were deployed to support an incident, a need for frequency pairing operating on wide spacing was crucial to minimize interference.  A vital part of this project was increasing the separation between transmit and receive frequencies which then required the installation of high quality wideband lowband antennas.
