The joint development of a network circuit with antennas mmWave allows for speeds more than 10 times faster than the frequencies currently used for mobile devices.

Ericsson and IBM Research have announced what you have listed as a “progress of research” network technology and 5G with the development of a new integrated circuit with antennas mmWave (silicon-based millimetreWave) could speed up the adoption of 5G.

As part of their partnership, Ericsson and IBM have created this circuit with an antenna module that works in the band spectrum of 28GHz to be used in base stations 5G. The bands mmWave, within the electromagnetic spectrum, allow for speeds that are up more than 10 times faster than the frequencies currently used on mobile devices.

“it Is a significant step towards the development of modules commercially viable because of its size, weight, cost, and performance”, it has been argued from Ericsson.

In the development of this solution, companies have taken advantage of the experiencia of Ericsson in the design of circuits and systems mobile communications and knowledge of IBM solutions antennas mmWave.

The two companies announced in 2015 your collaboration network technology and 5G, confirming later launch in 2020.
