AGC has now developed a transparent antenna for FWA-CPE for 5G millimeter wave by combining its ultra-low-loss glass substrate and ALCAN Systems' liquid crystal phased array antenna*1. The new design separates the FWA-CPE from the antenna module and mounts the transparent antenna on the window glass, enabling the indoor Wi-Fi area to be created while maintaining a high level of lighting without compromising the landscape. Furthermore, the design reduces the heat generated by the antenna module, lowering the risk of thermal breakage of the window glass.
