mmWave Technologies – Where Do They Make Sense
Due to the massive available bandwidth, mmWave Technologies do promise to solve many of the challenges associated with 5G-Networks. However, this technology has also significant drawbacks and application constraints. This presentation will highlight benefits as well as constraints of mmWave technologies and suggest useful applications.
