Microlab to Enable Deployment of Mid-band Spectrum Allocations for 5G

Microlab, a Wireless Telecom Group company, has announced that it has expanded its broad portfolio of RF signal distribution and combining solutions to enable the deployment of commercial wireless networks utilizing new licensed and unlicensed mid-band spectrum allocations. The new spectrum includes highly valued mid-band frequencies within the Citizen Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), C-Band, 2.5 GHz Band 41, and Release 16 5G New Radio Unlicensed (NR-U) standards. Mid-band spectrum is ideal for 5G due to its capacity for higher data transmission and lower transmission loss yielding wider coverage. With Microlab solutions, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), neutral host providers, system integrators, and 3rd party operators will be able to improve capacity for an increasing number of 5G connected devices.

As the realization of 5G networks continues, the customers are preparing their network infrastructure for upcoming mid-band spectrum allocations to capitalize the ideal balance it provides between throughput improvement and coverage for 5G. Network deployments are being designed to accommodate the new frequencies now to avoid the need to rip-and-replace band-limited network components. Microlab customers value the ability to cost-effectively commission networks that are future-proof with their wideband components and reduce their total cost of ownership.

Microlab is a preferred partner of network designers who want to take advantage of the ultra-wide bandwidth (617-5925 MHz) tappers, directional couplers, power dividers, cables assemblies, and attenuators, to support all 5G FR1 bands including the upcoming mid-band spectrum allocations. In addition, Microlab offers both standard and custom signal combining solutions, like multi-band combiners, integrated solutions, and hybrid combiners, which enable injection of the shared license CBRS band, unlicensed 5 GHz mid-band and increasingly utilized 2.5 GHz Band41 (2496-2690 MHz) spectrum into existing networks for 5G capacity improvements.

Microlab solutions are relied upon to deliver the highest quality, low dissipative loss and prolonged low passive intermodulation (PIM) in compact form factors to meet the existing and emerging demands of indoor and outdoor wireless coverage and capacity in small cells and distributed antenna systems (DAS) deployments, as well as centralized and distributed radio access network (C-RAN and D-RAN) configurations.
