Today is a big day for the future of 5G networks in North America! Earlier this morning, Todd Davis and his team announced the formal launch of Veluxsys, a New York company using next-generation integrated photonics technologies to improve 5G and mmWave radio architectures. Backed by expertise in fiber optic networks through Precision OT, Veluxsys is the first American company to leverage software-defined-radio and integrated photonics to form the next generation of 5G communications systems.
In a nutshell, here is the problem the company is working to solve: Everyone, from consumers to the wider telecommunications industry, wants 5G to happen but lacks the equipment to make it cost-effective. In fact, this challenge has caused some industry analysts to suggest network costs could double as providers work to meet consumer demand for 5G.
Fortunately, Veluxsys is providing the solution, relying on its team’s years of experience in radio architectures and photonics. By surpassing conventional radio mechanisms with optical technology, the company’s radio and antenna innovations will serve as an innovative, cost effective and compatible solution to the challenging performance requirements of 5G applications.
“Our team of experts has been listening to the concerns of the telecommunications industry for some time. Right now, many companies worry they will have to deploy an exponentially greater number of radios, antennas and antenna arrays so end-users can enjoy the ubiquitous coverage they have come to expect with 4G networks. This is because millimeter wave (mmWave) technology, which underpins 5G communications, has a relatively short range of up to less than a mile. However, by using highly-sophisticated photonics technology, Veluxsys is designing a whole new type of radio-to-multiple-antenna system that will save network operators money and help 5G networks become reality.” – Todd Davis, CEO of Veluxsys
According to Cisco, by 2025, the global 5G market is predicted to reach a value of $251 billion. With proprietary technologies carefully crafted and designed by Veluxsys’ in-house experts, network operators, carriers and service providers will soon be able to experience major cost savings for large-scale 5G applications.
