Ericsson managed to power a 5G station with a laser
Ericsson and PowerLight Technologies have tested the new technology to power a 5G antenna with a laser.

A photovoltaic panel was used as a laser beam receiver to convert radiation into electricity. Thus, the engineers managed to send 480 watts of energy over a distance of 300 meters. In the future, the distance can be increased to 1 km, and the power can be increased to 1000 W.

Together with the laser itself, the installation will be equipped with a protection system. This will make it possible to secure any objects that fall into the contour, for example, flying birds. When crossing the contour, the beam will be turned off, and the operation of the antenna will not be interrupted due to the presence of the battery.

Ericsson believes the technology will help accelerate the deployment of next-generation networks with a wireless power supply.
