Anokiwave becomes guest member of 3GPP to promote development of global 5G standard

Anokiwave Inc of San Diego, CA, USA, which provides highly integrated silicon core chips and III-V front-end integrated circuits for millimeter-wave (mmW) markets and active electronically scanned array (AESA)-based terminals, has joined the 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP) as a guest member. The firm reckons that membership of 3GPP will continue to advance its position in the mmW 5G market as future specifications and standards are developed for 5G.

3GPP unites seven telecoms standard development organizations and provides their members with a stable environment to produce the reports and specifications that define 3GPP technologies. The 3GPP scope includes managing the evolving standards for 5G. The 3GPP Technical Specifications Group recently agreed on a detailed workplan for its first release of 5G specifications (Release 15) which includes a decision point in December in which 3GPP will plan system architecture features to be included in Release 15 in 2018. As a guest member, Anokiwave will be able to contribute to the architecture discussions as one of the first companies to have introduced mmW 5G ICs in the marketplace. 3GPP expects full phase-1 5G deployments to begin in 2020.

Having released the first Ka-band silicon quad core IC for 5G active antenna systems, Anokiwave says that its patent-pending IP blocks implemented in silicon technology enable low-cost hybrid beam forming for multi-antenna arrays with high energy efficiency, low latency beam steering, and low system sensitivity.

"Anokiwave is in a unique position, working with 5G market drivers to establish system specifications that I believe we will ultimately see in the 3GPP Release 15," says CEO Robert Donahue.
