A look at 5G mmWave-focused absorber technologies

A look at 5G mmWave-focused absorber technologies
To enable the large increase in wireless data transfer needed for the new 5G wireless standard, spectrum in the millimeter wave range will be needed. There is simply not enough available spectrum in the sub 6GHz range. The millimeter wave range is largely unregulated with wide chunks of available bandwidth making it ideal for data transfer applications. By Paul Dixon, Staff Scientist, Laird Technologies.
