• 6E, Or Not 6E, That Is The Question

    Wifi 6E will bring a stronger connection and allow for proper analytics to keep track of connectivity issues, two things everybody will benefit from. But is it an upgrade you need to seriously consider?

  • LTE-M — Delivering a Futureproof IoT

    Considering that LTE-M is included in the 5G framework and will last until at least 2040, has lower costs, and meets the requirements of smart utilities, it is the obvious choice for utility and smart city developers.

  • 5G Is Here — But How Long Until 6G Replaces It?

    With 5G technology just scratching the surface and parts of the world still utilizing 3G and 4G technologies, is it too early to be thinking about 6G? (Hint: it’s not.)

  • Ensuring SAR Compliance With Smart Proximity Sensors In 5G Devices

    SAR sensors allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to build products that reduce RF power only when necessary. Smart sensors are highly accurate and can distinguish an inanimate object from a human, ensuring that the device is operating at peak performance and in compliance at all times.

  • Who Should Get The Billions Collected From Spectrum Auctions?

    Spectrum auctions yield multi-billion dollar proceeds, but it's not always clear where the money ends up. Now, two parties are vying for a fraction of those funds, one with hopes of upgrading an aging 911 system and the other with providing internet know-how to underserved communities. Both potential recipients could provide vital resources to underserved communities. 

  • FAA Issues Flight Notices As 5G Rollouts Stuck In Limbo

    A week before the anticipated Jan. 19 rollout of enhanced 5G wireless services, the Federal Aviation Association (FAA) has issued a historically high 1,462 flight notices detailing the potential interference 5G may have on aircraft altimeters. As reported by Bloomberg and Reuters, these notices, called notices to air missions or NOTAMs, were issued to areas around major airports and hospitals with medical helicopter operations.


week-in-5G-graphic The Week in 5G — 5G "Protective" Jewelry Actually Radioactive, Verizon Exceeds Own Expectations

This week, Verizon says it established more than 14,000 new cell sites this year and is on par to reach more than 100 million more customers in the first quarter of 2022. Dutch authorities ban jewelry that purportedly "protects" people from 5G when it discovers the items are actually radioactive. And, Viasat warns that India's inclination to sell off spectrum once slated for satcom might prove detrimental to the country's economy. 



The new components and technologies required for 5G deployments must provide reliable operation in the presence of real-world noise and interference. Noisecom noises sources generate the broadband noise required to do this type of benchmarking, enabling 5G development and deployment through quantifying component and system performance across the microwave and mmWave bands.

5G New Radio (NR) introduces key improvements on LTE, including more efficient modulation, waveform optimization, and scalable numerology – thus offering advantages such as low latency, faster speeds, and high reliability. In this video, learn about essential requirements for 5G base stations and 5G private network, as well as robust, customizable 5G NR solutions from CommAgility.

Learn more on how a full range of comprehensive testing solutions from Rohde & Schwarz can help you deploy high performance and reliable operations in 5G private networks across various industries, for humans (QoE) and machines (M-QoE) users.

Compatible with the previously released SKY67183-396LF and SKY67189-396LF, the SKY67181-396LF by Skyworks is a high gain LNA. Applications include small cells, massive MIMO, macro basestations, and more.


The Si5518B NetSync Network Synchronizer Clock combines the functions of a SyncE/IEEE 1588 PTP network synchronizer clock with a low phase noise 5G/eCPRI wireless jitter attenuator into a single IC device.

The Skyworks family of wireless jitter attenuators offers CMOS integration, reduced power, low noise and size without compromising the stringent performance and reliability required in wireless applications.

NetSync network synchronizer clocks support Synchronous Ethernet (SyncE)-compliant wander filtering and software adjustment of output frequency and phase for IEEE 1588 applications.

The SKY58211 Envelope Tracking Front-End Module (FEM) is a multimode multiband (MMMB) module with integrated Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs), which supports 2.5G / 3G / 4G / 5G and CDMA handsets, and operates efficiently in WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE modes.
