In millimeter-wave deployments, densification is a necessity, not an option, for a number of reasons. Recently, Senza Fili Consulting analyst Monica Paolini sat down with InterDigital’s Alpaslan Demir to discuss the role of densification in millimeter-wave bands.  

Alpaslan is a part of the team at InterDigital working on the next-generation millimeter-wave network that is addressing challenging problems in densification. He stated in the interview that, “the beauty of these frequencies is that the new bandwidth they make available is tremendously large” which “gives you the ability to increase densification.” Alpaslan went on to say that, “the more bandwidth you have, the more data you can transmit,” and explained that this ability is what makes millimeter-wave bands a priority for operators and why there is an overall industry push for that expansion.
