LG U+ chooses Canadian partner for in-building 5GLG U+, Korea’s No. 3 mobile carrier, said Tuesday its 5G in-building network will be designed with a Canadian-made software platform that will allow the company to provide faster and reliable 5G services.
LG U+ said it has adopted Quebec-based iBwave Solutions’ designing tool for 5G in-building wireless networks. The software can offer better wireless coverage inside buildings after analyzing the building structure and interior materials, according to LG U+.
The 5G network for in-building use requires a precise design since 5G frequencies in high-band spectrums are more susceptible to propagation and penetration losses compared with those in low-band spectrums, LG U+ said.
LG U+ previously joined hands with iBwave Solutions on a 5G network design for Korea’s baseball and football stadiums.
