Frequency (Telecommunication)

Higher frequency means higher available bandwidth and lower latency. As the telecommunications industry transitions to 5G, higher frequency signals become crucial in the last-mile connections to users.

These wavelengths are so short that more signal interferences will occur due to environmental factors, atmospheric effects and obstacles that can not be penetrated.

The frequency specified in a link profile affects the width of the Fresnel zone, where higher frequencies have a shallower Fresnel zone.
