5G X-haul

Filtronic is a key supplier of E-band transceiver modules for next-generation 5G X-haul applications.

5G X-haul

The 5G X-haul applications leverage derivatives of Filtronic’s existing E-Band transceiver product, both at E-Band and other frequencies such as Ka-band. E-band will also be used for mmWave 5G systems and as such, technology Filtronic develop at these frequencies is complementary.


Technically advanced high-frequency RF communications equipment is essential to the development of future 5G systems, and with network access and mmWave know-how Filtronic is well placed in the market to support these networks as they are developed.
