5G is widely considered a mobile technology that won’t be available until perhaps 2020 or 2021, and even then, not widely. 
Cisco predicts that by 2021, a 5G connection will generate 4.7 times more traffic than the average 4G connection.

5G will be a quantum leap from today’s LTE-Advanced networks.

    Experts at the Table, part 2: Getting 5G standards and technology ready are only part of the problem. Reducing latency and developing applications to utilize 5G have a long way to go.

    IMS 2018 Prologue: Prepping for the mmWave Era
    https://www.mwrf.com/systems/ims-2018-prologue-prepping-mmwave-era?NL=MWRF-001&Issue=MWRF-001_20180807_MWRF-001_938&sfvc4enews=42&cl=article_1_b&utm_rid=CPG05000002750211&utm_campaign=19105&utm_medium=email&elq2=c441be9d153840faa61bd75c0ca629db

    The RF/microwave industry was generally optimistic at the exhibition in anticipation of real opportunities for mmWave products in automotive and 5G markets.

    Visualizing antenna patterns on a map can be helpful in design—this latest blog post from Rick Gentile discusses several methods on how to do that via MATLAB.

    5G Front-End Reference Design Meets Multiple Needs
    https://www.mwrf.com/systems/5g-front-end-reference-design-meets-multiple-needs?NL=MWRF-001&Issue=MWRF-001_20180717_MWRF-001_205&sfvc4enews=42&cl=article_1_b&utm_rid=CPG05000002750211&utm_campaign=18628&utm_medium=email&elq2=0987aeff302c46b688e3cc0614cee492

    Integrating a power amplifier, a pre-driver amplifier, and a receiver switch/low-noise amplifier, this flexible front-end solution is equipped for next-generation 5G communications.

    Optoelectronic Oscillators Charge mmWave Synthesizers
    https://www.electronicdesign.com/analog/optoelectronic-oscillators-charge-mmwave-synthesizers?NL=ED-003&Issue=ED-003_20180810_ED-003_99&sfvc4enews=42&cl=article_1_b&utm_rid=CPG05000002750211&utm_campaign=19201&utm_medium=email&elq2=44fd798e27774104b817f7610854e84d

    These X- and K-band synthesizers apply optoelectronic technology to achieve high levels of frequency stability with reduced phase noise.

    Reducing noise in higher-frequency oscillators is one way to achieve reliable, high-data-rate communications, although noise tends to rise with increasing frequency. All sorts of oscillators and frequency-synthesis techniques have been applied in recent years in attempts to trim phase-noise levels at microwave frequencies. Many of these approaches have been electrical in nature.

    Taking a different tack, Synergy Microwave Corp. and Drexel University jointly developed a line of frequency synthesizers that leverage optical circuit techniques to help achieve lower-noise microwave signals at X- and K-band frequencies. In these low-noise frequency synthesizers, optoelectronic transmission lines and optoelectronic oscillators (OEOs) are part of the solution for reducing both close-in and far-from-the-carrier phase noise in microwave signal sources.

    SiTime and Intel Announce Collaboration on MEMS Timing for 5G
    https://www.eeweb.com/profile/eeweb/news/sitime-and-intel-announce-collaboration-on-mems-timing-for-5g

    SiTime Corporation and Intel today announced a collaboration to work together on integrating timing solutions for Intel’s 5G multi-mode radio modems, with additional applicability to Intel LTE, millimeter-wave wireless, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GNSS solutions.

    “Our collaboration with SiTime on MEMS-based silicon timing solutions will help our customers build leading 5G platforms to best take advantage of the increased performance and capacity that the 5G NR standard brings,” said Dr. Cormac Conroy, corporate vice president and general manager of the Communication and Devices Group at Intel Corporation. “Intel’s modem technology and our collaboration with SiTime is helping to enable new mobile and consumer experiences, and enterprise and industrial use cases.”

    SiTime’s MEMS timing solutions enhance system performance in the presence of stressors such as vibration, high temperature, and rapid thermal transients.

    “Intel is already building 5G’s future and has the scale to meet 5G’s scope,” said Rajesh Vashist, CEO at SiTime. “Our collaboration enables SiTime to align our MEMS timing solutions roadmap with Intel’s 5G platforms. Intel’s expertise in 5G modems, with SiTime’s game-changing timing technology, is a potent partnership for future growth and one that enables successful deployment of 5G. As SiTime continues to lead the world in MEMS timing, the opportunities between our companies are growing and this agreement sets us both on a path for continued success.”
