20 June 2017: What do we need to do now to make 5G a reality as soon as possible?

Innovation and development needs to be tapped into now. Cloud RAN, neutral host, cognitive and pervasive radio, Mobile (or Multi- Access) Edge Computing (MEC) Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) Software Defined Networks (SDN)…. And of course Plasma Antennas reduce the cost of Base stations and CPE by 66%, it’s not just us that say this, our lead customers are confirming it.

5-June 2017: Planes, Trains, Automobiles….and Plasma Silicon enabled Small Cells. Could these all be part of a multi-hop HetNet?

When Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communication (URLLC) services become available UHD video on demand, video games and other data hungry applications will use them and users will expect widespread availability on their mobile devices, on planes, trains and in Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV’s). The challenge is interference mitigation. Plasma Silicon offers the solution. This is not new to Plasma Antennas, we have been building rolling meshes for defence applications for over a decade.

24-May-2017 : Why Plasma Silicon is the last link in the 5G chain…. And the first!

Only antennas based on Plasma Silicon Devices (PSiD) provide the low loss and power handling to deliver the range at an affordable price. PSiD’s not only require less silicon to do the same job as Phased Arrays but also simplify the whole system design providing a secondary set of significant cost savings by their use. It’s the last link between the 5G mmWave network and the subscriber and the first link from the subscriber to the 5G mmWave network.

22- May-2017: Plasma Antennas joins the Small Cell Forum to make 5G a commercial reality. Plasma Antennas are already working with several members of the forum, and plan to work with more, to solve the challenges presented by mmWave for mass market applications.
