Apple jumps on the 5G bandwagon

Apple store

Gadget giant Apple has asked the US regulator for a license to test the millimeter-wave technology expected to be a core element of 5G in devices.

Light Reading reports that Apple wants to test on 28GHz and 39GHz spectrum as momentum grows in 5G research from the device perspective. It also notes that most US operators have holdings in those spectrum bands and that there is a growing global consensus that these will be key components to the high data-rate features of 5G, although many issues still need to be resolved before such tech is viable in the field.

“Apple Inc. seeks to assess cellular link performance in direct path and multipath environments between base station transmitters and receivers using this spectrum. These assessments will provide engineering data relevant to the operation of devices on wireless carriers’ future 5G networks,” said the Apple FCC filing.
