5G Network Planning—Capacity, Performance, Wireline Competitiveness
A Rysavy Research report, updated December 2019, analyzing network planning, capacity, and performance of wireline and wireless technologies, including 4G, 5G (mid-band spectrum and mmWave), cable (DOCSIS), cable in the future, and fiber. The report includes:
- Up-to-date performance information
- Mid-band spectrum and mmWave
- Capacity modeling based on Gbps/sq. km
- A discussion of all pertinent variables such as site density and spectral efficiency
- The equations to calculate capacity
- A quantitative comparison of wireless vs. wired networks
- An Excel spreadsheet that performs the calculations and provides the ability to enter alternate assumptions, such as amount of spectrum available
