  • Publication number: 20230010144
    Abstract: A 4G and/or 5G signal communication unit is able to be attached to a glazing unit that includes housing with at least side parts and a cover. A communication device is fixed inside the housing and is surrounded by the side parts and the cover. The 4G and/or 5G signal communication device has at least one antenna. The housing includes a matching element. A communication system includes a glazing unit, at least the 4G and/or 5G signal communication unit and a provider fixed station or active or passive repeater, which is placed at least at 1 m outside from the glazing unit. The 4G and/or 5G signal communication unit is fixed to the glazing unit at the opposite side from the provider fixed station or active or passive repeater.

  • Patent number: 10618836
    Abstract: A glass plate includes a first surface provided with a first film; and a second surface provided with a second film and opposite to the first surface. Each of the first film and the second film includes mainly tin oxide and has a sheet resistance value of 20 ?/? or less. When film thicknesses of the first and second films are ?1 nm and ?2 nm respectively, and when, in the glass plate, a haze value measured from the first surface side for a configuration provided with the first film only is H1 (%), and a haze value measured from the second surface side for a configuration provided with the second film only is H2 (%), a value of ?1 divided by H1 is 500 or more but 1200 or less, and a value of ?2 divided by H2 is 300 or more but 750 or less.
