Veluxsys Promises Cost-Effective 5G Deployment Solution

New York-based Veluxsys, a subsidiary of optical transceiver company Precision OT, has announced that it is set to help make the deployment 5G mobile networks more cost-effective and profitable. The company specializes in fabless semiconductors and next-generation integrated photonics, which it says can improve 5G and mmWave radio architectures. Specifically, Veluxsys is aiming to solve the problems associated with 5G’s relatively short range, typically measured at less than a mile, in order to address concerns about the sheer number of radio deployments and antenna required by 5G networks. The company hopes to be the first US-based company to provide a viable option that takes advantage of both integrated photonics and software-defined-radio backed by fiber optic networking to make 5G rollouts have less of a negative impact on network operators. Veluxsys CEO Todd Davis has also hinted that the solution will be an entirely new kind of system for handling communications between radios and multiple-antenna arrays.

Unsurprisingly, given that the company has not previously been a well-reported or major part of the wider 5G discussion, no deeper details have been provided with regard to exactly what that solution will be, for the time being. However, its parent company has been a part of the photonics and radio industries since 2014 and is planning to use that position to show off the new 5G solution at an unspecified point in the near future. That demonstration will be backed by the fiber optic networks laid by Precision OT and a sign-up is available at the company's website. The goal of that will be to provide key insights with regard to how the system will help cut costs across the board for large-scale 5G deployments.

In the meantime, Veluxsys is not the only networking solutions company looking to capitalize on the ongoing 5G race or minimize costs to carriers and service providers. As the company notes, citing Cisco, 5G is expected to be a $251 billion market by 2025, providing connectivity for everything from autonomous vehicles to mobile devices at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. Ericsson, for example, is approaching the technology's range and cost problem with a last-mile solution that's intended to fill the gap between micro radio sites and rooftop sites. That won't necessarily come into direct competition with Veluxsys's proposed solution but it is still too early to tell, pending more details.
