At Veluxsys, we believe that millimeter wave (mmW) communications can make cost-effective 5G wireless deployments a reality. In fact, with higher radio frequencies and wider bandwidths, mmW technology enables the possibility of over-the-air data rates of up to 10Gbps. For carriers looking to deliver on the revolutionary throughput and data speeds 5G promises, mmW is truly the way to go.
Right now, however, many carriers and network operators face a unique economic challenge in bringing 5G to consumers – the shorter wavelengths of mmW. With a range of less than a mile, companies worry they will have to deploy an exponentially greater number of radios, antennas and antenna arrays in any given area just to provide the ubiquitous coverage that users have come to expect with current 4G wireless.
That’s where we come in!
The combination of Radio-over-fiber (RFoF), integrated photonics and photonically-distributed antennas will allow for radio-to-multiple-antenna systems that can provide for low-cost, flexible 5G network architectures in the face of ever growing bandwidth and geographic coverage demands. So how will it work?
