What Can mmWave Do For 5G Backhaul?
The backhaul segment of the network is traditionally made up of the intermediate point-to-point links between the core (or backbone) network and the small subnetworks at the network edge, where the base stations are. Since 5G is aiming for multi-Gbps data rates for subscribers, all this data will need to be backhauled at much higher rates, too.
Packaging For mmWave Devices — Why Do We Need It, And How Do We Do It?
Several package types can be used at mmWave frequencies, so the choice will depend on the specific application. However, some general design rules apply to all forms of packaging.
