5G network services promise higher-speed connections, greater reliability, and low latency. Industrial applications will drive new mobile IoT applications that support mission-critical applications. These demands have led to the development of 5G, built to support an abundance of IoT, higher capacity, and very low latency connections. Service providers have started upgrades of their transport networks for 5G capacity, but there are many challenges to overcome. Multiband microwave will be one of the solutions to address these challenges.
