The abundant spectrum available at millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency bands above 24 GHz can deliver extreme capacity, ultra-high throughput and ultra-low latency. At Qualcomm, we made 5G mmWave possible in commercial 5G systems and continue to drive the technology evolution in this decade and beyond.
RETURN ON INVESTMENT
The improved user experiences and satisfaction for business and consumers, day-to-day, leads to significant monetization potential and new opportunities for operators. Find out from these studies about the economic benefits and cost-effectiveness of deploying 5G mmWave, covering different countries and deployment scenarios including dense urban, indoor enterprises, and fixed wireless access (FWA).
The economics of mmWave 5G
This study by GSMA Intelligence assesses the total cost of ownership and finds how mmWave is a cost-effective and competitive deployment strategy across different countries and deployment scenarios.
Learn from independent tests and analysis about the true capacity, speeds and performance that 5G mmWave is delivering today across real-world commercial network rollouts – and how this translates into superior experiences for subscribers.
mmWave: New Use Cases and Insights from Real-World Deployments
This study details the performance of 5G mmWave from real-world testing done in commercial networks in the United States. Results include insights from 5G mmWave in the enterprise, 4K multi-screen content, fixed wireless access, and increased downlink and uplink network capacity, thanks to support for up to 8 downlink and up to 2 uplink mmWave component carriers.
PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE
5G mmWave not only unlocks extreme capacity and multi-Gigabit throughput that fuel cost-efficient unlimited data plans in dense networks today, but it also enables us to realize the full potential of 5G.
mmWave is an essential ingredient and a complementary building block of a high-performance 5G system. 5G mmWave can deliver truly differentiated services, thereby making it an investment that all mobile operators should include as part of their 5G network deployment planning.
There are different deployment considerations for various 5G mmWave networks. We have captured the results from years of end-to-end system simulations and field tests provide you with better understanding on how 5G mmWave can perform.
We continue to advance 5G mmWave technologies to bring new and enhanced capabilities and efficiencies. The future evolution of 5G mmWave brings new level of system performance and expands mmWave to new devices, use cases, and verticals.
We have solved the “impossible challenge” to mobilize mmWave for wireless communications, overcoming mmWave’s significantly higher path loss, sensitivity to blockage, and RF complexities that make meeting the cost and power constraints of mobile devices extremely difficult.
5G mmWave builds on a mature technology and device ecosystem. Get to know how Qualcomm® Snapdragon ™ 5G Modem-RF Systems and Mobile Platforms, with support for mmWave across 8-, 7-, 6- and 4-series, deliver breakthrough wireless performance for a new era of connected experiences.
