The foundation of the contemporary wireless communication sector is wireless infrastructure. Wireless infrastructure includes a wide range of product categories, such as base stations, radios, antennas, emulators, hand-over test systems, spectrum monitors, and much more. With the ongoing rise in user demands, the industry has recently begun to transition toward millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies to fulfill future needs for very high capacity and ultra-low network latency. In this article, everything RF has compiled a list of top Wireless Infrastructure products that are trending on our website in September 2022.
