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.

How To Design User Equipment Antenna Systems For 5G Wireless Networks
The evolution to 5G promises low latency, high data rates, and increased channel capacity for mobile communication networks. Delivering this promise requires revamping existing networks, building new infrastructure and developing the client devices. These are major changes and implementing them is going to be difficult, costly, and time-consuming. To this end, virtual prototyping through simulation can help solve the difficult engineering challenges, realize innovations, and reduce costs. This paper provides pervasive simulation techniques and workflows for designing 5G antennas, microcell arrays and end-user devices or user equipment (UE) on Ansys tools.
