This paper explores the practical first steps of any roll-out, focusing on the spectrum below 6GHz as standards for millimeter wave spectrum have yet to be defined. The paper focuses on the 5G RF front-end. Skyworks presents its perspective on how early 5G will be implemented with particular emphasis on enhanced mobile broadband applications, or eMBB, in 3GPP parlance. The paper also seeks to correlate developments with pre-existing 4G LTE Advanced Pro.
