5G Coverage Discussion Panel Article
5G operators are facing two significant optimization challenges: bandwidth and propagation. If these challenges are looked at separately, the preferences for 5G frequencies can vary. Additionally, while 5G is an evolution of the cellular technology from 4G, 3.5 GHz is a new and additional frequency band upon which the 5G systems can operate.
To gain a clearer picture of 5G Network coverage and the importance of MIMO (Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output) and the 3.5 GHz frequency, we reached out to a panel of experts. Our respondents provided us with in-depth and insightful information on how frequencies and frameworks will impact 5G propagation and bandwidth, and what solutions and new strategies are emerging.
Our 5G Coverage panel includes Chuck Powell, Product Director for Base Station Antennas, North America at Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), Hussein Rashad International, Channel Manager at Consultix, Greg Dial, Senior Vice President for Product and Marketing Strategy at JMA Wireless, and Roger Nichols, 5G Program Manager at Keysight Technologies.
