Test and Measurement: Airgain opens new 5G antenna testing lab

Antenna company Airgain has unveiled a new testing laboratory focused on 5G millimeter wave. The company said that the bands being used for 5G mmWave networks “create a new set of challenges for development and testing, with much higher levels of atmospheric loss, very short channel coherence times and propagation of signals that is primarily line-of-sight. Overcoming these not only requires new design approaches, but also significant investments in new testing systems to help quickly identify issues and enable swift design revisions.”

5G and getting through low-E glass

RCR Wireless – One of the biggest challenges for 5G fixed wireless access is bringing millimeter wave signals from the outdoors to the inside. The short wavelengths at those high frequencies mean that mmWave is very susceptible to being blocked or reflected by standard building materials, making it difficult to complete and sustain a link between a nearby mmWave tower and in-home customer premise equipment. Low emissivity or low-e glass, which has a thin coating to reflect energy from the inside and outside in order to reduce heat loss of the home, has a reputation as a notorious signal killer.
