“Today Skyworks introduces our breakthrough Sky5™ platform, enabling the
next-generation of wireless communications,” said Liam K. Griffin,
president and chief executive officer of Skyworks. “5G is a
macro-economic game changer that will revolutionize the global
communication landscape with significantly more powerful and complex
connectivity engines. As a leader in unwiring the planet, Skyworks is
well-positioned to capitalize on the demand for robust and dramatically
increased data transmission speeds with near zero latency ─ key features
that are mission critical in powering new usage cases from autonomous
vehicles to emerging segments in artificial intelligence, robotics and
virtual reality. Our Sky5™ solutions will address new 5G waveforms and
spectrum, enhanced carrier aggregation, dual connectivity (4G/5G) and
massive MIMO requirements while delivering unmatched levels of
integration and performance, all underpinned by Skyworks’ intellectual
property, operational scale and financial strength.”
According to a May 2017 Research and Markets report, the very first
standardized deployments of the technology are expected to be
commercialized as early as 2019, with the 3GPP’s standards organization
initial 5G specifications set to be implementation-ready by March 2018.
Between 2019 and 2025, the 5G network infrastructure market is expected
to aggressively grow at a compounded annual growth rate of nearly 70
percent, eventually accounting for $28 billion in annual spending by the
end of 2025.
What is 5G?
5G is the term used to describe the next generation of mobile
communications beyond today’s 4G LTE standard. It embraces a
revolutionary paradigm shift in wireless networking and will support
groundbreaking throughput speeds (up to 100x faster than 4G), low
latency and scalability for future usage cases that require extreme
bandwidth including autonomous vehicles, augmented reality and the
billions of machine-to-machine and IoT connections. To put this in
perspective, according to Intel, by 2020 a single autonomous car is
expected to consume 4,000 gigabytes of data per day in real-time
diagnostics, positioning and vehicle to vehicle communications – that’s
equivalent to the daily data consumed by more than 2,000 smartphone
users in 2017. Downloading a full-length HD movie in 3G took one day, in
4G, the same file took minutes. On a 5G network, this content will be
downloaded in mere seconds.
5G networks are expected to utilize a variety of spectrum bands ranging
from established sub-6 GHz cellular bands to millimeter wave
frequencies. The 3GPP organization is the mobile industry standards
group that will submit a proposed specification to the International
Telecommunications Union, or the standards body that sets the final
specification. Skyworks is a key contributor to the 3GPP body on the
Radio Access Network (RAN4) technical specifications.
All of Skyworks’ devices and system solutions supporting 5G will be
included in the Sky5™ family. This will include an unprecedented suite
of highly flexible and customizable architectures and devices that
provide breakthrough performance, footprint and power efficiency. To
