5G NR or 5G New-Radio is an OFDM-based global wireless standard on which the first version of 5G will be based. It has been designed to support the wide variation of 5G device-types, services, deployments and spectrum. This next generation cellular technology will succeed 4G LTE to provide considerably higher data rates and connectivity. This […]
Unlike 3G and 4G, which primarily used the sub-6 GHz spectrum globally – 5G will use a wide range of Sub-6 GHz frequencies as well as mm-Wave spectrum. The challenge with the use of mm-Wave spectrum is that there are issues with availability of the same frequency bands globally. As a result of this, each […]
5G or 5th Generation technology is soon going to become a reality. Unlike 4G this is not a slight improvement over its predecessor (3G). 5G will provide speeds and data rates 10x-100x that of what 4G provides. Combining cutting-edge network technology and the very latest in research, 5G will offer connections that are multitudes faster than […]

Will the next-gen network prompt the ‘fourth industrial revolution’? What will cities of the near future look like when buildings, cars, people and a whole slew of other things can communicate with each other? Earlier this month, tech companies and telecoms at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, tried to answer that question, showing off their plans for […]
5G networks will greatly expand wireless functionality, but need policymaker support to truly flourish. The ongoing development of 5G wireless technologies represents a unique opportunity to radically expand the capacity and flexibility of wireless networks, which will have profound implications for broadband competition and productivity growth. Policymakers at the national and local level should support […]

Open architecture standards will make or break satellite’s viability for 5G and other applications, said a mixed panel of experts at the SATELLITE 2018 Conference & Exhibition. During a panel discussing the potential convergence of the satellite and terrestrial industries, the speakers asserted that establishing fair and open-ended standards will be key for satellite to […]
As a technology, nobody is quite sure what 5G means. It’s a whirl of uncertainty. We get the real sense that it will dictate the future of telecoms as we know it, but nobody really knows what or how it will impact the satellite industry. This next generation of wireless telecom will comprise a new […]
I’m pleased to be invited by Via Satellite to write an article that may provide contrarian perspectives to the popular beliefs that are pervasive in the market that somehow HTS GEO, MEO and NGSO systems will be having a material impact in the adoption and deployment of 5G from 2020 and beyond. The current FSS […]
While attending several telecommunications conferences and trade shows throughout the past couple of years, I’ve heard a wide variety of opinions on how the industry should define the separation between fourth-generation (4G) and fifth-generation (5G) connectivity services. A majority of those opinions see 5G as a new product — a service that will emerge out […]
