5G

5G is the fifth generation of wireless mobile technology. 5G operates in the mm-wave band to overcome the limitations of 4G. The optimization of 5G networks happens for various reasons: Human-centric communication (HCC) and machine-type communication (MTC).Therefore, 5G has the potential to be the key enabler of emerging bandwidth-, speed-, and latency-critical HCC and MTC applications.

This includes applications like:

  • medical diagnosis and surgery
  • vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication for autonomous driving
  • wireless transmission of uncompressed ultra HD videos
  • augmented and virtual reality
  • tactile internet and a multitude of IoT applications which lead to smart health
  • smart energy

5G and Millimeter-wave-based RF Systems

The millimeter-wave (mm-wave) band offers enormous bandwidth that is unparalleled compared to the spectrum available for most wireless communication and radar senor systems today. Consequently, mm-wave frequencies are currently being exploited for the development of emerging broadband, high-speed and high-resolution RF systems. For example, the 5th generation of the wireless mobile technology (5G) is expected to operate in the mm-wave band, so as to overcome the limitations of 4G. Unlike 4G, 5G networks and systems will be optimized for both human-centric communication (HCC) and machine-type communication (MTC). Therefore, 5G has the potential to be the key enabler of emerging bandwidth-, speed-, and latency-critical HCC and MTC applications such as remote medical diagnosis and surgery, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication for autonomous driving, wireless transmission of uncompressed ultra HD videos, augmented and virtual reality, tactile internet and a multitude of IoT applications which lead to smart health, smart energy, smart transportation, smart industry (Industrie 4.0) and smart city.
