5G’s Impact on the Telecommunication Industry: From RF Infrastructure to Mobile Front-Ends – Webcast



Diving deep into mobile RF front-end architectures and the challenges for the telecom infrastructure industry.

The 5G revolution is now a reality. Since the implantation of infrastructure dedicated to the Sub-6GHz frequency and the millimeter wavelength (mmWave) bands for 5G in several regions of the world, many manufacturers have chosen to upgrade cell phone designs to get this connectivity. However despite their efforts, a lot of development still needs to be done before using the complete power of 5G.

On the infrastructure side, the current trend at macro-site level is the use of beamforming and active antenna systems. The prospective use of mmWave small cells will completely change the way infrastructure RF front-ends are built. Indeed, cost, size, technology platforms and value chain are all impacted, according to Yole Développement.

On the mobile phone side, cost and architectures of RF front-ends are also evolving. To help understand, System Plus Consulting will give cost information on the different architectures. It will also show how the technology is integrated to minimize its impact in several 5G cell phones.

To complete this analysis, KnowMade will explain how players align their technological and product roadmap with 5G.

In this webcast, the three parts of the Yole Group of Companies are joining forces to provide an understanding of the current RF market and its evolution. Join us to get a deep analysis of the development of RF front-end modules and related devices to better fit with 5G deployment.
