Unlike previous technologies, the spectrum for ' >5G networks is divided into three radically different frequency ranges.
This division is an essential element of this attractive modern technology.
The lower part of the frequency spectrum, which represents a range of frequencies up to 1 GHz, provides excellent signal coverage and penetration, but on the other hand, the transfer rate is limited to 100 Mbps.
The middle part of the 1-6 GHz frequency spectrum represents a compromise between the bit rate (up to 1 Gbps) and the capable range, which decreases proportionally with increasing frequency.
The last largest part of the frequency spectrum includes an area higher than 6 GHz (referred to as mmWave”), with very high bit rates up to 10 Gbps (10,000 Mbit / s) with extremely low latency (connection response). On the other hand, the range of the signal and its penetration are very limited.
Splitting ' >5G technology into three totally different frequency areas allows providing of next-generation networks with high quality coverage, but also with high speed and low delay and maximizing Quality of Service (QoS) as needed.
