Skyworks Deploys Advanced 5G Infrastructure Solutions

19 November 2018

Skyworks Solutions Inc., an innovator of high-performance analog semiconductors connecting people, places and things, is ramping 5G small cell and massive MIMO (multiple-input, multiple-output) solutions that significantly enhance network efficiency, delivering higher capacity with greater coverage. Small cells are low-power, easy-to-implement radio access points that operate in both licensed and unlicensed spectrums with a typical range of 10 to several hundred meters. Mobile operators are utilizing a scalable grid of small cells to facilitate powerful, high-speed connectivity in support of data intensive and quickly emerging 5G applications. Skyworks’ portfolio creates viable new options for cellular and wireless providers to cost-effectively address mounting system requirements.

According to Research and Markets, the total value of the small cell market is expected to grow from $13 billion in 2017 to more than $58 billion by 2024.
