Today’s technologies continue to reach higher frequencies and wider bandwidths. Take, for instance, 5G in the U.S.—it will utilize 28- and 39-GHz frequency bands with 1.2 GHz of bandwidth. The IEEE 802.11ay standard makes use of frequencies between 60 and 70 GHz with 2-GHz bandwidths. Satellite-communication (satcom) systems routinely extend beyond 70 GHz with bandwidths greater than 5 GHz. The list of these emerging high-frequency and high-bandwidth technologies grows every year.
