5G Cellular Electromagnetic Window Considerations

D. J. Kozakoff, C. Corallo, D. Petra, and W. Roovers

Every pole mounted cellular antenna uses a RF transparent electromagnetic window to protect the antenna from the environment. For 5G and the migration to much higher cellular frequencies and extremely broadband signals, many materials used at current frequencies cannot provide adequate low loss and broad bandwidth performance. This article discusses some issues and tradeoffs. MORE
