5G Networks Seek New Frequencies to Offer Very Fast Data Rates, States IDATE Research in Its Study Available at MarketPublishers.com15 May 2017 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – 5G is yet to be standardised. Nevertheless, a range of 5G networks have begun hunting for novel frequencies to offer very fast data rates far and wide, in spectrum ranges of all types.
A number of frequencies were intended for IMT use at the 2015 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15). The first frequency bands across Europe are poised to be the 700 MHz band and the 3.4-3.8 GHz bands. These frequency bands are set to provide improved capacity for mobile broadband solutions, open up novel opportunities for carrier service providers, and assist in making mobile broadband affordable for users worldwide.
The competition is intensifying between regions regarding which bands to choose. Worldwide, 5G is projected to aggregate more spectrum in the 3 band types, such as sub-1 GHz, sub-6 GHz and above 6 GHz.
It will likely lead to a trade-off between technical feasibility and consumer/use case requirements on the basis of propagation characteristics.
New research efforts on a set of spectrum bands above 24GHz for the next WRC-19 are anticipated to provide one of the keystones for 5G network development.
Topical market research study “5G Spectrum: Which Bands When?” drawn up by IDATE provides an all-encompassing, unprejudiced examination of the marketplace. It covers the regulatory status pertaining to 5G spectrum (between WRC-15 and WRC-19) as well as gives insights into the prospective bands for 5G use. The research report also offers an all-round analysis of the bands that are expected to be utilised by 5G networks below 6 GHz and in millimeter bands. The study discusses the early 5G bands in Europe below 6 GHz, focusing on their current status and future availability.
