[eBrief] Demystifying Millimeter Wave for 5G Mobile Uses

The coming 5G NR (New Radio) standard will allow for commercial deployments in 2019 for mobile networks and devices. The use of millimeter-Wave (mmWave) spectrum frequencies, such as 28 GHz and 39 GHz, has emerged as a key technology enabler for delivering content-rich data like video to smartphones, tablets, VR headsets and even vehicles.

However, utilizing these higher spectrum bands does not come easy — increased propagation loss, susceptibility to blocking, and mobile device form-factor constraints are just a few reasons these high-bands were traditionally unsuitable for mobile.

Early 5G research is now showcasing how advanced 5G NR technologies will overcome these challenges to provide robust mobile broadband communications.
