Defeating Interference in a Connected World

by Fairview Microwave The wireless industry may be short of available spectrum below 6 GHz, but it has interference in abundance, and there’s even more coming in the future. It’s not just from 5G, the most likely culprit, but also from the enormous number of wireless-enabled devices employed by IoT networks, connected vehicles, and expansion […]

A Quick Guide to Lightning Arrestors

by Fairview Microwave There are two basic ways electricity and electromagnetic energy can destroy a broadcast tower, microwave link, cellular base station, or any other wireless infrastructure: transient voltage spikes and lightning. Of the two, the former is the more frequent and the latter more damaging, and neither can be ignored. When lightning strikes a […]
