Antenna leader standardises on ANSYS simulation solutions

1 min read

ANSYS and Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) are laying the foundations for 5G with antennas pioneered by RFS designed to connect people, machines and devices faster and more reliably than before.

Standardising on ANSYS simulation solutions is said to enable RFS engineers to slash simulation time from four days to one hour — speeding their antennas to market and driving global adoption of 5G.

Antenna designers must satisfy next-generation 5G standards, comply with a variety of demanding operator and country-specific requirements, and integrate 4G and 3G architectures for legacy users. Together, these specifications require hundreds of different designs to build the hundreds of thousands of antennas mounted on cell towers and building rooftops — ensuring maximum coverage for users worldwide.

ANSYS empowers RFS antenna architects to rapidly create designs across numerous frequency bands. Simulation automation is designed to quickly validate new architectures and reduce the number of prototypes and measurement cycles.

“Evolving antenna design architecture from 4G to 5G is a monumental technological leap and places huge demands on hardware development. Our teams are motivated to conceptualise new designs faster than ever to provide guaranteed quality of service, the most important metric for communication systems,” comments André Doll, chief technology officer at RFS. “RFS standardises on ANSYS to speed the development of our highly reliable next-generation antennas that will soon deliver maximum 5G coverage for wireless consumers worldwide."
