How to expand 5G mmWave coverage with IABs
Small coverage footprint is one of the major challenges of mmWave bands. They require hyper-dense deployments to be effective. But bringing fiber backhaul to these is very expensive as well as time-consuming. Integrated Access Backhauls (IABs) introduced in 3GPP Rel. 16 solve that issue. It’s not just IABs, you will also need Self Interference Cancellation (SLIC) implemented in them to maximize the performance. In this episode, I talk to David Cutrer, CEO of Kumu Networks, the company developing SLIC for IABs, on how it works and when are the large-scale deployments of IABs expected. For more details, check out my Forbes article, and the article series on RCR Wireless News: https://bit.ly/TA-IAB

How to evaluate 5G patents - Views from the subject matter expert
Patent evaluation is a complex process. Many industry observers usually take an easy route and use simple patent counting to decide technology or market leadership, completely disregarding the quality of the patents they hold. But when it comes to patents, we know that quality matters much more than simple quantity. In this episode I talk to the head of a leading patent evaluation firm Patent Sight William Mansfield regarding patent quality vs. quantity, the patent evaluation process, and most importantly the Patent Asset Index ranking.
