5G New Radio Solutions: Revolutionary Applications Here Sooner Than You Think
Irvine, California--November 26, 2018--
Skyworks Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: SWKS), an innovator of high performance
analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, has published a new white
paper titled, "5G New Radio Solutions: Revolutionary Applications Here Sooner Than You
Think." It is available free for downloading.
As demand grows for ubiquitous wireless connectivity and the promise of new and previously
unimagined applications – such as autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, telemedicine
and virtual reality – so does the anticipation for 5G. 5G will be revolutionary, delivering
higher data throughput, extremely low latency and speeds up to 100 times faster than
4G. As a result, 5G is moving toward commercial reality faster than many expected. With
that in mind, mobile operators are implementing near-term, tactical efforts to ensure
that 5G demonstration hardware becomes available by late 2018 and throughout 2019.
This paper explores the practical first steps of any roll-out, focusing on the spectrum
below 6 GHz as standards for mmWave applications have yet to be defined. Our approach
is not intended to subscribe to any particular solution; rather, it is an introduction
to what Skyworks believes will likely transpire over the next several years. In addition,
our framework focuses primarily on the practical solutions for the 5G RF front-end (RFFE)
in the sub-6 GHz arena. To help readers better understand what that practicality means,
Skyworks presents its perspective on how early 5G will be implemented with particular
emphasis on enhanced mobile broadband applications, or eMBB, in 3GPP parlance. Our goal
is to provide some reasonable expectations of the future and correlate it to current
4G LTE Advanced Pro to see how manufacturers will address the new requirements. We will
describe how the early rollout for 5G will proceed, how the standards will be translated
into networks and devices, and what we can expect to see over the next several years
as 5G becomes commercialized.
With decades of experience over previous standards coupled with our systems and technology
expertise, Skyworks is well- positioned to deliver the significantly more powerful and
complex architecture demands associated with 5G.
