Mobilizing millimeter wave for 5G

Millimeter wave spectrum provides the kind of capacity that 5G promises, but it comes with tricky propagation characteristics. Right now, particularly in the U.S., operators are tapping millimeter wave spectrum for 5G fixed wireless access deployments with the two-fold aim of providing pre-standard 5G commercial service–think ultra fast home broadband–and to gather key learnings that can inform future use of millimeter waves for mobile services.

As it stands, anything from foliage variation to construction material can impact the radio link quality of a millimeter wave transmission.
