The interactions of physics and economics that help 5G add up

There is a constant negotiation between the disciplines of physics and economics; a tension between the natural science of matter and energy, and the dynamics of markets. The evolution of the telecoms industry, at the forefront of technology, shows how physics changes economics, whilst economics demands new solutions from physics and science. This is especially true in the area of 5G where optical technologies, which provide the core network bandwidth, and radio technologies for access, are being pushed to new heights. How does this play out? In this article, our VP of Engineering, Nathan Sowatskey, explores this tension.
