A fundamental feature of wireless (duplex) bidirectional communication systems is the way to separate the transmitted and received signals. We almost always find that the standard either establishes alternating them in time intervals, with the device quickly switching between transmission and reception, or transmitting them in different frequency bands and separating them by means of radiofrequency filters.
We are approaching the end of 2019 and the beginning of a new decade in which we are expecting amazing technological innovation capabilities. The last few years have seen repeated reports of trends, with much talk of 5G, cloud services, blockchain, edge computing, IoT, and so forth.
In my previous blog post last week on 5G, we saw how Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) is considered a cornerstone use case for 5G and a new source of revenue stream for both MNOs and CPEs manufacturers.
Like many things in our lives, and as a result of the technological revolution, cities are subject to a constant transformation as they respond to the needs of the citizens who live in them and maintain or increase their sustainability. With the emergence of the IoT (Internet of Things), cities will undergo huge transformations aimed at both solving the problems which, in many cases, are already besetting them – as is the case of pollution – and providing people with more and better services.
