Sivers IMA to Supply 5G Products to a Leading European mmWave Connectivity Provider

Sivers IMA has entered into an agreement to supply 5G products to a leading European provider of licensed point-to-multipoint broadband networks (PMP) microwave and millimeter wave solutions. The provider has a large installed base of point to multipoint systems all over the world.

This partnership covers the development and early access to 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) RF components, where the highly-integrated RF solution from Sivers IMA will be a key component in this company’s plans to extend its existing portfolio.

System studies and early development activities have started and the first initial deliveries of components from Sivers IMA, to be used in prototypes and proof of concept activities, will start during the fourth quarter this year.

The number of 5G subscriptions is forecasted to reach 1 billion by the end of 2023 and mmWave is a key technology in 5G networks that will be used for backhaul, fronthaul, small cells and fixed wireless access applications. The rollout of 5G networks is expected to accelerate from 2020 and cover more than 20 % of the world’s population by 2023.
