Carriers are realizing that outdoor mmWave propagation requires new strategies and tools to deploy 5G mmWave networks cost effectively. mmWave signals are restricted by line-of-sight (LOS) and building penetration. Yet they go where directed, allowing more less costly mmWave repeaters to minimize the number of fiber-connected gNBs. This is accomplished by spreading gNB capacity beyond gNB LOS.
Cost-effective mmWave deployments require careful planning and execution. The nature of mmWave propagation requires precision accuracy in centimeters instead of meters. Pivotal’s February 2022 podcast described how Holographic Beam Forming® enables the lowest cost, size, weight, and power consumption profile for its mmWave repeater products. This webinar will lays out Pivotal’s step-by-step process and considerations for deploying those products.
- Economic and network planning (WaveScape datasheet)
- Professionally installed outdoor network repeater (Pivot 5G)
- Subscriber-installed indoor subscriber repeater (Echo 5G and Echo 5G Boost)
- Repeater management and optimization (Intelligent Beam Management System)
Proper planning and execution of mmWave networks allows for precisely targeted, subscriber-centric deployments that can grow organically with carrier revenue.
