IBM  and Ericsson have recorded a research breakthrough that could accelerate the launch of 5G communication networks and support new mobile enterprise and user experiences enabled by very high data rates, including Internet of Things (IoT), connected vehicles, and immersive virtual reality.
The companies have created a compact silicon-based millimeterWave (mmWave) phased array integrated circuit operating at 28 GHz that has been demonstrated in a phased array antenna module designed for use in future 5G base stations.
Experts have described 2017 as a defining year for 5G. More countries and governments are opening up new frequency portions of the electromagnetic spectrum, including portions known as mmWave bands, which are more than 10 times higher than the frequencies currently used for mobile devices, offering a new source of bandwidth for cellular networks that are being made available for 5G networks.
