Pivotal Commware Ships 5G mmWave Subscriber Unit
Posted on January 21, 2020 by Pivotal Commware
Pivotal Commware – the recognized pioneer of 5G mmWave technologies, systems and applications – has begun commercial shipment of its 28 GHz Pivotal Echo 5G subscriber repeater to a Tier 1 mobile network operator in the United States. The Echo 5G uses Holographic Beam Forming® (HBF) technology to deliver on the promise of 5G mmWave.
The Echo 5G accomplishes this using Pivotal’s patented HBF technology whose cost, size, weight and power consumption (C-SWaP) profile is significantly lower than phased array beamformers; specifically, an order of magnitude less cost, less than half the weight and less than one third the power consumption.
