Will DSL destroy 5G in the battle over the last mile? | IEEE Communications Society.Figure 1 – DSL data rate progression versus shorter twisted-pair loop length

A very interesting article from Cioffi and company at Assia. The new “waveguide modes” for transmission over twisted pair to achieve 1Tbps is intriguing!

Editor’s Corner—Verizon says its new indoor/outdoor prototype 5G modem solves one of the biggest 28 GHz problems | FierceWireless.

Basically, Verizon invented a two-part 5G modem: One part sits outside a user’s window, and the other part sits right on the other side of the window. The two parts are connected by magnets or some other method (in Verizon’s demo they were taped to the window) in a way that ensures the two halves line up exactly.

The antenna, receiver and transmitter are on the outside of the window, while the power, display and connection ports are on the inside. The two halves communicate through the half-inch of glass wirelessly, but Verizon’s Jack said that the connection technology used there was the “secret sauce” of the design and he wouldn’t tell me exactly how it worked.

T-Mobile will focus on 600MHz spectrum rather than the focus on mmWave (28, 39 GHz) spectrum for fixed wireless access by other carriers, particularly Verizon.
