Riding the Millimeter Wave for High-Speed Data in Private Networks

By Michael Schachter 4 min read

Millimeter wave (mmW) wireless transport is a compelling, cost-effective alternative to traditional microwave (MW) technology for delivering high-speed data across private network applications. These range from Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) and Fiber Network Extension/Backup to Enterprise Multi-Gigabit Connectivity, Metro and Aggregation Networks, Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) Gigabit Broadband, and backhaul transport. By utilizing E-band and V-Band, mmW technology addresses the shortage of available spectrum on microwave frequencies, providing high-capacity, low-latency transport at a reduced cost. This innovation positions mmW as a strong contender for various scenarios previously dominated by MW connectivity.

Utilizing the Full Spectrum

The deployment of mmW technology across a diverse range of applications yields substantial benefits, primarily due to its high-frequency spectrum. This enables mmW to transmit vast quantities of data at exceptionally high speeds, a critical feature in the era of 5G and IoT, characterized by exponential data demands. Additionally, the high frequency provides a wealth of available bandwidths, reducing the likelihood of network congestion and ensuring reliable connectivity while minimizing potential frequency interference with other devices in the vicinity.
