5G - A World of Possibilities

“5G will be a new kind of network, supporting a vast diversity of devices with unprecedented scale, speed and
complexity. 5G will have an impact similar to the introduction of electricity or the automobile, affecting entire
economies and benefiting entire societies.”
Steve Mollenkopf, CEO, Qualcomm

A New Wireless Age

5G is the next generation of wireless network technology that will fundamentally change the way people live and work. With the advent of streaming video, autonomous vehicles, AR and VR, the demand for data is projected to surpass the capacity of existing 4G LTE networks as soon as 2023.

With speeds up to 10x faster and capacity up to 100x that of existing 4G LTE networks, 5G represents the future of wireless communications, where the full capabilities of new technologies can be unlocked.

Compliments of IEEE Spectrum

True 5G

All of the speed and connectivity improvements promised by 5G do not come without challenges. To realize the full performance potential of 5G, networks and devices must operate on significantly higher frequencies (above 20 GHz). These millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies are truly what enable the higher performance capabilities of 5G. This is due to greater bandwidth availability for data transfer and reduced spectrum congestion because of fewer interfering signals.

Solving the Complexities of 5G

The complexities of 5G frequencies above 20 GHz require substantially more complicated systems, multiple antennas, and advanced RF front-end devices in order to work. A key component to the deployment of 5G are RF chips that are compact, low cost, and highly efficient. Mobix Labs has solved the complexities surrounding the higher frequencies that true 5G demands and has developed a diverse library of RF building blocks that address the key challenges associated with these next generation wireless systems.
