The RF component market for telecom infrastructure will peak at $4.2B in 2023 thanks to active implementation of 5G.
“The development of AAS for urban coverage, for both LTE and 5G equipment, can be seen as the main game changer in the telecom infrastructure RF component industry in the past few years.” asserts Cédric Malaquin, Technology & Market Analyst, RF Devices & Technology at Yole Développement (Yole).
These systems have changed in the number of RF chains and their power level. In previous passive approaches, a RRH with up to four independent streams would amplify the signal, with power levels in the 80W range on average. With active antennas, up to 64 independent RF lines are used, with power levels down to 5W and below. This has drastically changed the bill of material.
In this context, Yole investigates disruptive RF technologies and related markets in depth, to point out the latest innovations and underline the business opportunities.
