|| As Mobile Broadband and Device Use Surges and as the Home Devices Get Chattier Communicating More and More, People are Adding Local Lanes to the Information Superhighway ||
Most people would rather take a short car trip than a long one. That’s true whether they have kids or not. Short-range trips are more manageable in a car unless it's the thrill and memory of a road trip. Also, less traffic is better than more traffic. Unless you have a really amazing podcast, a shorter, faster drive is ideal.
That short, easier travel is an excellent example of mmWave and 5g mmWave technology. Data consumption is spiking as telecommunications matures from a shrieking modem just thirty years ago to dozens of interconnected devices and appliances in a single home. And it’s growing in terms of traffic for the router and between these interconnected devices.
Memorial Day and the trip to grandma's or the cabin or the gulf--that is behind us. But there are many treks for vacation and graduation in June. This digital roadwork is called mmWave which is important as we move an increasing bulk of data.
At one time, mmWave tech was the main thang for aerospace. But it's increasingly being used for everyday consumers' and public needs. To help our customers get and keep a handle on the light-speed growth of the smart home, Evolve has this blog post as a reference primer for understanding this new technology.

Let's quickly go over some of the basic terms in telecommunications.
