Fujikura Acquires Experimental License on New 5G Band

Fujikura Ltd. (TOKYO:5803) has developed a millimeter-wave communication module operating at a new 5G band (66~71GHz) identified in the World Radiocommunication Conference 2019 (WRC-19) and acquired a license of the experimental radio station for this frequency band to conduct a variety of experimental field tests, the company said.

This frequency band has already been allocated as an unlicensed band in the US, but WRC-19 has newly identified it as a globally allocatable 5G band and is expected to be used all over the world.

Users can confirm its communication performance by connecting with network equipment since the SDK works as a millimeter-wave wireless router. Users can also monitor the detailed information about the wireless link such as SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) or MCS (Modulation and Coding Scheme) by using the SDK commands.
