5G networks are offering faster speeds and more reliable connections than ever before by utilizing cutting-edge technology with unprecedented download speeds

The huge rise in Internet of Things technology will demand the infrastructure needed to exchange huge amounts of data.

To achieve this bandwidth, MNOs (mobile network operators) will increase the density of their networks by adding more small cell sites and antennas, and upgrade to MIMO (multiple input/multiple output) technologies.

However, interference becomes more challenging with densification as additional handoffs raise the potential of dropped connections.  Therefore, SONs (self-organizing networks) are necessary and advanced beamforming technologies are required to optimize performance.

MARS Antennas provides a wide range of easy-to install antenna solutions with beamforming capabilities to deliver speeds for 5G network without sacrificing signal reliability.

The 28-30 GHz frequency band propagation designated for 5G technologies is very directional.  Since it may reflect off some smooth surfaces, reflection cannot be used for high throughput when there is no direct line of sight. Due to the small size of these waves, tracking a user with beam steering technology can also be a problem depending on the speed the user is moving.

However, MARS Antennas support the 5G technology that uses beamformed patterns through time and space which user’s devices will be able to lock onto. Consequently, the base station antennas will use beamforming to steer the beam directly to the user’s device delivering high capacity throughput for both fixed wireless access and mobility.

Beamforming benefits 5G systems by increasing the received signal gain – through making signals emitted from different antennas add up constructively – and through reducing the multipath fading effect. In line-of-sight propagation, beamforming results in a well-defined directional pattern.

MARS antennas provides solutions for Spatial multiplexing technologies which demand MIMO configurations in which a high-rate signal is split into multiple lower-rate streams and each stream is transmitted from a different transmit antenna in the same frequency channel.

Spatial multiplexing can be a powerful technique for increasing channel capacity at higher SNR (signal-to-noise ratios).
