Skyworks Solutions, Inc. has released a new white paper, “5G in Perspective – A Pragmatic Guide to What’s Next,” providing the company’s insights into the quickly evolving fifth generation (5G) global telecommunications standard. The paper examines the current state of LTE networks, discusses ways it could evolve to deliver a 5G user experience, and identifies the tools and techniques required to support a 100x improvement in data throughput.
Current projections suggest 5G data rates will approach 10 times the fastest 4G speeds of today. Leveraging its technology leadership and broad systems expertise, Skyworks, in partnership with customers and industry standards committees, is playing a critical role in defining next generation solutions to meet these requirements.
“Consumer demand for high-speed, always-on connectivity will increase exponentially with the advent of 5G,” said Peter Gammel, chief technology officer for Skyworks. “Addressing this explosive need for data creation and delivery requires complex architectures that will work seamlessly across multiple frequency bands and within a crowded spectrum. With decades of RF experience, technology breadth and depth, Skyworks is uniquely positioned to address these next generation applications. Our 5G paper offers some insights into the technology requirements for this brave new world.”
