Controversy over 5G Spectrum will Affect Utilities – Not Just Airlines
- Jan 6, 2022 2:47 pm GMT
A dispute between the airlines and communications companies about potential interference between aircraft's radio altimeters and the 5G radio spectrum has just emerged. Although this has caused disruption and grounded airplanes, how can it affect utilities?
Unfortunately, this issue is not just confined to air travel. Part of the radio band has newly been allocated to communications providers, so this will impinge upon utility operations, particularly in the vicinity of airports. EnergyCentral did a special edition last year on how 5G and LTE systems would be important to upgrade communications for utilities to ensure better interaction with advanced technologies like DER and IoT. The implementation of 5G appears to have hit a rocky patch.
