5 Considerations to Optimize the Performance of 5G


Frequency Bandwidth

In contrast to 4G, which works on existing frequency bandwidth below, which is 6GHz, but, 5G requires 300GHz frequency bandwidth to operate. 5G uses a shorter wavelength, which would require much smaller antennas than the existing ones. This network's super high frequencies can work only with clear, direct line-of-sight between the device receiving the signal and its antenna. To overcome this issue, strong land-based fiber systems could be established similar to the one used by the 4G network.
