MDR 5G – Prepared for the future
TrellisWorks are well prepared for the MDR 5G future with the best product partnerships. The current status of 5G, +1, +10 Gbps and <1-20ms Latency, with different ‘waves’ for different applications, fixed, NB-IoT and Low Latency, display signs of future potential. Not only that, but many 5G-smartphones are scheduled for release and over 20 carriers worldwide have announced support for this standard. The current status of 5G in the UK currently stands at 6 cities, London, Cardiff, Belfast, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester.
Meeting significant engineering challenges
5G technology includes broadcasting at frequencies between 30 to 300 GHz, has small cells requiring minimal power to operate and includes massive MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) supporting about a hundred ports. Not only this, but Beamforming identifies the most efficient data-delivery route to a particular user and Full Duplex enables 5G to transmit and receive data at the same time, on the same frequency.
A 5G network and user requirements, possibly billions of connected devices, pose significant engineering challenges for the future. But it’s a test that TrellisWorks is well prepared for and, as a matter of fact, we’ve already started working on.
