This page covers 5G mmwave signal power booster manufacturers or vendors. The popular manufacturers of 5G mmwave signal booster are SIAE MICROELETTRONICA, SureCall, Millimeter Wave Products, Ericsson, FRTek, Movandi etc.

What is 5G mmwave signal booster ?

5G (Fifth Generation) mobile technology uses two frequency bands viz. FR1 and FR2. FR1 covers 450 to 6000 MHz frequency range where as FR2 covers 24250 to 52600 MHz. FR2 uses millimeter wave (mmwave) frequencies in different bands. The common mmwave frequency bands include n257 (26.5-29.5 GHz), n258 (24.25-27.5 GHz), n259 (39.5-43.5GHz), n260 (37-40 GHz), n262 (47.2-48.2) etc. The mmwave spectrum offers wide bandwidth and delivers high data rates. Mmwave wireless system requires smaller size antennas and hence multiple antennas can be packed in various array configurations. This antenna arrays offer high gain and supports beamforming capabilities. Moreover mmwave antennas are easy to integrate in 5G mmwave mobile handsets.

5G mmwave signal booster

The other components used in mmwave cellular system include mmwave transceivers, mmwave signal boosters, mmwave RF front ends, mmwave filters etc. 5G mmwave signal booster boosts the 5G RF signal before transmission into the air by mmwave antenna as shown. This helps in meeting RF link budget requirements in 5G network. It is connected in the transmit path after outdoor unit before antenna port. These 5G boosters are useful to many service providers such as Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile to extend their 5G mmwave network coverage.

Following are the specifications of mmwave signal booster used to extend coverage of 5G network.
• Standards/Technologies (4G LTE, 5G. PCS, AWS) Supported
• Uplink parameters (Frequency, gain, gain adjustment, output power etc.)
• Downlink parameters (Frequency, gain, output power, noise figure etc.)
• VSWR, Input/Output impedance, power consumption, RF connector types, dimensions, weight, certifications etc.
