Abracon | Communications Solutions
Abracon solutions are used in data center servers, connected devices, routers, switches, and other 5G communication devices.

Communications

As the communications industry has dramatically evolved over the years, new technologies have been introduced into our lives. Disruptive technologies have been envisaged, developed, and then introduced as a widespread everyday technology at home and at work. The changes can be an entirely new product use case or a new feature for an existing product type. 5G is the latest in telecom standards that enable the wireless connection of many commercial and industrial products, known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT). Abracon is a leading supplier of crystals, clock oscillators (XOs), antennas, cellular antennas, inductors, and connectors (RJ45) for 5G enabled network infrastructure. Solutions are used in data center servers, connected devices, routers, and switches.

5G

5G is the latest telecom standard that will enable the wireless connection of many items and products, known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT). Before 5G we were familiar with the 4G and 4G LTE cellular network connecting people via our Smart Phones and other Smart Devices. 5G builds on this technology from the ground up allowing both connectivity of people and things. 5G provides much lower latency (delay) compared to 4G LTE allowing Mobile Gaming and other use-cases where lower-latency is important or in many other cases, critical. One example use-case is IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things), and it will vastly enhance other applications.


5G New Radio (NR)

5G NR has been developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) for the 5G mobile network. It defines the Air Interface linking our mobile devices and other connected electronics to the 5G Network via the Active Base Stations. Once the data is picked up by the Base Stations it is transmitted along the Mobile Backhaul (physical network) to a server located in the Data Center, with Mobile Fronthaul being the data transmission to the Mobile Access Point. 5G NR differs from 4G LTE in that it builds on the 4G LTE network but at the same time delivering a major improvement in the capabilities and data communication speeds.

Abracon components power 5G connected devices like fire alarm systems and home security systems that keep you safe.

Wireless access control is just one of the 5G elements of the IoT that Abracon components power.

IoT

Massive IoT is one of the key segments of 5G. The typical IoT device communication is sending and receiving small amounts of data that can be delivered in a message. Today SMS is used, however, it has a limitation in terms of the service capability (e.g. 140 bytes payload), and performance (long latency), in addition, the overhead of control plane resources is high.

Abracon 5G Communications Products

Frequency Control and Timing Devices


Abracon has precision timing crystal oscillators (XOs) such as Temperature-Compensation Crystal Oscillators (TCXOs) and Oven-Controlled Crystal Oscillators (OCXOs) which are well-suited for the Timing Reference Clock requirements in timecards, servers, switches, and routers.

RF and Antennas


Abracon has the world’s widest range of industry-leading antenna solutions with external IP67 rated solutions for cellular (combo 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, and 5G NR (FR1) bands, CBRS, and high-performance MIMO antennas. Other form-factors include internal flexible PCB antenna with cable and SMA connector which are ideal for use-cases such as multiband small cells. The patented Niche antenna solutions and the OnBoard designed and developed by ProAnt are ideal for uses in small size, high volume designs where small overall size is required such as found in many IoT modules.

Inductors and Connectivity


Abracon’s RJ45 connectors are available in a wide variety of parameter combinations to meet your exact requirements and product design. There is the choice of with or without magnetics, data rates 10G Base-T, 5G Base-T, 2.5G Base-T, 10/100/1000 Base-T, and others, LED color choice, right-angle or vertical orientation, 0 to 70C and -40 to 85C (extended operating temperature) and gold plating options. Further options include multi-port 1x2 or 1x4 modules for an efficient design.

5G 5G is the latest in telecom standards that enable the wireless connection of many items and products, known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT). Before 5G we were familiar with the 4G and 4G LTE cellular network connecting people via our Smart Phones and other Smart Devices. 5G builds on this technology from the ground up allowing both connectivity of people and things. Compared to 4G / 4G LTE, the 5G network delivers a faster data rate compared to 4G / 4G LTE. 5G provides a much lower latency (delay) compared to 4G LTE — allowing Mobile Gaming and other use-cases where lower-latency is important or in many other cases critical. One example use-case is IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things), and it will vastly enhance other applications.
5G New Radio 5G NR has been developed by 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project) for the 5G mobile network. 3GPP defines the set of global standards for 5G NR and other wireless networks such as 4G LTE etc. New releases are issued by 3GPP regularly, with each release further defining or optimizing the standards. Release 15 was the first set of standards for 5G. The most recent release is Release 16. Release 17 is due in 2022 and is expected to kick-start many IoT and IIoT use-cases. How is 5G NR different from 4G LTE? 5G builds on the 4G LTE network but at the same delivering a major step improvement in the capabilities and data communication speeds. Frequency Range 1 (FR1), for bands within 410 MHz – 7125 MHz. Frequency Range 2 (FR2), for bands within 24250 MHz – 52600 MHz. 5G NR is initially using the 4G core network, the so-called “non-standalone (NSA)” network. The plan is then to migrate to a Standalone Network (SA). Many carriers are using both the 4G core network and a 5G NR network by multiplexing.
IoT Massive IoT is one of the key segments of 5G. The typical IoT device communication is sending and receiving small amounts of data that can be delivered in a message. Today SMS is used, however, it has a limitation in terms of the service capability (e.g. 140 bytes payload), and performance (long latency), in addition, the overhead of control plane resources is high. The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP™) has presented a technical specification for a Message Service within 5G system for approval from the Technical Specification Group (TSG). The document covers requirements for a messaging service used for person-to-thing and thing-to-thing communication within the 5G system, “MSGin5G service." The service (if approved) would provide point-to-point, application-to-point, group, and broadcast message delivery of person-to-thing communication and thing-to-thing communication. Application-to-Point message: Message that is originated at a User Equipment (UE) and terminated at an Application Server in the network or originated from an Application Server and terminates at a UE. MSGin5G Service: A Mobile Network Operator (MNO) message service in the 5G systems that enable Point-to-Point, Application-to-Point, group, and broadcast messages. Delivery for thing-to-thing communication and person-to-thing communication. MSGin5G Server: Routes messages between the UE and AS. MSGin5G Gateway: An entity in the 5G system for routing messages between the MSGin5G Service and the non-3GPP message service. Point-to-Point message: a message that originates from a UE and terminates at a UE.
