A North American telecom company is now a customer of Sivers Wireless, a subsidiary of Sivers Semiconductors AB. This new customer has decided to develop products for the unlicensed 5G millimeter wave market by using Sivers market-leading 60 GHz technology.
A cornerstone in the customer’s offering will be the new 2D beam steering module from Sivers Wireless that enables flexibility and robustness during deployment and operation of new products. The BFM06009 is unique as it is one of the only commercially available modules with electronic beamforming in two dimensions that can be used over the full 57 to 71 GHz frequency band. The unlicensed nature of the 60 GHz band makes it ideal for quick broadband network deployments, where gigabit throughput is requested by the end-users.
Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers Semiconductors said that they continue to add more 5G design wins, which is their 25th. With the government-funded broadband investments in the US like the New Infrastructure Fund and the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, the opportunities for Sivers in unlicensed 5G have increased substantially over the last six months. This customer is yet another example of their successful offering for the North American market and another justification for them to be opening an office in the US.
