Getting Beamforming Right in the Millimeter-wave Bands
We hear a lot about beamforming in the trade press, on podcasts and elsewhere, but what is it and why do we care? Beamforming involves the precise phase shifting of the elements of an antenna array to generate a very narrow beam focused in a very specific direction. The narrow beam greatly increases the gain...
The All-Wireless Enterprise: Blasting Through Walls @ 60 GHz
The unlicensed V-band has been getting a lot of attention of late. The initial focus was on using it for residential broadband, but now the interest has turned to in-building wireless backbones. One of the great advantages of the V-band is that it has an enormous amount of spectrum (14 GHz in the U.S.) and...
Elements of the All-Wireless Enterprise
Enterprise in-building networks are in the early stages of a major transition away from static networks based on fixed (aka wired) connectivity and toward an all-wireless future. Pulling wire to every desktop is becoming an anachronism in many industries. This transformation promises to make networks as agile and flexible as the businesses that they support. ...
