5G Antenna Technology Soon?

The answer is ‘Yes‘! We recently heard 5G announcements from both Globe and Smart as they have started to roll out this technology and seeing its implementation by about mid-2019.

On the handset side, Vivo and Qualcomm has announced its collaborates on the 5G antenna technology.  these two mobile pioneers accelerate 5G development by integrating new 5G millimeter wave technologies with sub-6 GHz into a single commercial form factor.

We will soon see new 5G mm-Wave (millimeter wave) antenna arrays into a Vivo commercial form factor as well as the measurement of system-level OTA (over-the-air) performance.

This milestone is significant as the arrival of 5G is creating major design challenges for smartphone manufacturers and network operators.

To fully support the rollout of 5G services, even greater complexity and tougher requirements have been added to antenna designs and technologies.

Through this landmark cooperation between Vivo and Qualcomm, Vivo’s industry leadership and innovation on 5G mm-Wave antenna design will contribute to creating optimal devices for end users. After this successful completion of 5G mm-Wave antenna design and measurement based on a Vivo commercial form factor, consumers will soon see the next round of new device designs offering superior performance benefits and a taste of the next generation mobile experience,” said Dr. Huan-Chu Huang, Antenna Technical Director/ Principal Antenna Expert at Vivo.

For end users, mm-Wave technology can attain higher data rates to enable the 5G peak data rate of around 10-20 times higher than that of existing 4G LTE technology, providing a better wireless experience especially with AR, VR, AI, and UHD (ultra-high definition) video applications.

It is expected that both 5G sub-6 GHz and mm-Wave antenna technology will be deployed in every major market around the world, with some markets by 2019 and others to follow in 2020.

 “From the early days of WiGig to 5G mm-Wave today, Vivo has been focused on deep studies and solid works on mm-Wave antenna designs and technologies. This successful development of 5G mm-Wave antenna array technology for smartphones denotes a further progression of Vivo’s accumulation of industry-leading technology breakthroughs and capabilities,” said Dr. Huan-Chu Huang.
