Introduction to 5G 60 GHz
5G 60 GHz is the future of mobile communications, delivering greater-than-4G capacity and reliability in an ultra-dense environment. 5G 60 GHz uses the unlicensed spectrum between 61-71 GHz, in order to provide a more robust connection than 4G LTE. It can be seen as an evolution of 802.11ad technology and can provide data speeds up to 7 gigabits per second (Gbps). 5G 60 GHz is a new wireless standard that will coexist with other standards, using the same frequency range as previous generations of cellular networks. It promises to extend the mobile broadband experience to new applications and use cases, including more centralized small cell deployments, giving rise to the so-called “round-the-corner” technology.
The 5G 60 GHz frequency band is optimized for the delivery of high throughput and low latencies, with minimal interference and co-channel interference. This can help improve the perceived quality of services such as ultra-high definition video, remote work and entertainment, fast charging, and massive machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity. 5G 60 GHz has been deployed in many regions and countries to support new use cases and services, including mobility, IoT and V2X. It is also expected that 5G-LTE coexistence will be studied by the industry and regulatory bodies as 5G New Radio (NR) system is standardized. 5G 60 GHz is a paradigm shift in mobile communication, with a focus on enabling high-bandwidth low latency and new use cases. To address these requirements, 5G 60 GHz introduces new features and functionality that dramatically expand the range of possible use cases, such as industrial automation, short range communications (e.g., pipelines), autonomous vehicles, and more. 5G 60 GHz is a new wireless communications standard that enables gigabit speeds. It uses non-line-of-sight (NLOS) propagation, which means there’s no need for line of sight to deliver ultra-high data rates. 5G 60 GHz will be used for future mobile communication technologies such as WiGig, WiSig and other next-generation wireless applications. The 5G standardization phase is being rolled out by 3GPP. It will be some time before early deployments occur, but in the meantime we can take a look at what the future may hold. 5G 60 GHz is particularly relevant because it’s designed to support higher data rates and lower latencies than current cellular technologies. 5G 60 GHz is a very high frequency band that is not easy for the environment, especially for wire communication. The advantage of using this spectrum is the near-zero distance between the transmitter and receiver, so there is no need for pointing antenna to send data. 5G 60 GHz band is one of the 5G spectrum bands recognized by ITU-R in its IMT-2020 radio specifications for next-generation access (5G) networks. The 5G 60 GHz band is considered as one of the most promising candidates for 5G wireless because it offers huge amounts of available spectrum in high frequency ranges. From a technical perspective, the 5G 60 GHz standard requires 20MHz wide channel bandwidths and sub-1ms delay budget within each channel, which makes it difficult to implement both with MIMO and OFDM based systems. 5G’s future is now.
