High-quality Aerial Imagery Helps to Unlock 5G Networks

Telecommunication operators are working at full speed to bring a 5G network to life in the early 2020s. Most operators are currently at the signal propagation planning stage and are defining optimal locations for the network nodes. Although widely used for the planning of 3G/4G networks, digital surface models generated from satellite images are insufficient for 5G antenna positioning. Another source, with required high-resolution data, is now available for the USA and large parts of Europe and Canada. 5G is the next generation of wireless network technologies. For 5G to become a reality, however, significant and fundamental changes need to... (read more)
