There is not enough electricity to run 5G – finding the road to 6G

Abstract – LTE transmitters draw a lot of power, and the RAN changes adopted for 5G-NR make this power draw issue worse.  There is a new very high efficiency solution for the 5G-NR signal operating in the sub-6 GHz frequency bands, but this solution does not translate to millimeter-wave (mmW) frequency bands.  Matching modulation design to the innate capabilities of existing mmW transmitters can immediately increase realized energy efficiency by a factor of 15 or more.  These analyses point the way to success on the road to 6G.
