In a pair of related reports released by Strategy Analytics, the reality of 5G evolution is analyzed. The report, “5G Progress Review - Fragmentation Likely but Diversification Inevitable”, concludes significant work is needed to marry the appeal of a unified early 5G standard with the longer term need to support diverse market requirements.
Open air is getting crowded. Signals streaming back and forth from smart devices stretch existing fourth-generation wireless networks almost to their limits. As demands on these systems increase, University of Wisconsin–Madison engineers aim to open new frontiers in cutting-edge wireless communications.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges,announced LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite 2.0, a development environment specifically designed for prototyping wireless communications systems. This new version adds NI Linux Real-Time capability for all software defined radio (SDR) products including the NI USRP RIO and FlexRIO.
Southwest Antennas announced the release of four new high gain 90° sector antenna designs specifically for use with 2X2 and 4X4 MIMO radio systems. These new high gain 90° sector antenna designs are available in both 2X2 and 4X4 MIMO input options covering the 2.2 to 2.5 GHz Federal Law Enforcement and ISM Broadcast S-Bands or the 4.4 to 5.0 GHz Federal Law Enforcement C-Band.
A postgraduate student from the University of Bristol is the joint recipient of five separate awards in recognition of their world record achievement in 5G wireless spectrum efficiency using Massive MIMO. The announcement was made at the 22nd annual NIWeek conference in Austin, Texas, at the National Instruments (NI) Engineering Impact Awards ceremony.
NI, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced the world’s first MIMO Application Framework. When paired with NI software defined radio hardware, this software reference design provides a well-documented, reconfigurable, parameterized physical layer written and delivered in LabVIEW source code that enables researchers to build both traditional MIMO and Massive MIMO prototypes.
Keysight Technologies Inc. outlined its commitment to the Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) Initiative, an industry consortium led by US Ignite and focused on creation of four, city-scale testing platforms.
Doodle Labs is proud to announce an industry-first family of 5 new embedded 4.9 GHz MIMO transceivers to enable System Integrators and modem manufacturers to quickly develop innovative high throughput applications for the Public Safety Agencies.
Keysight's new white paper, The Communication System Architect's Guide to 5G Physical Layer Modeling, describes how to model and evaluate a next-generation communication system in combined multi-domain simulation environments. With complex analog and digital components, it is vital to model accurately to understand the behavior of the system.
Technology advancement in the electronic industry is unyielding but new trends will build on RF communications to drive new product functionality. Some examples include the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G mobile networks and automation/smart technology.
Achieving sufficient capacity to meet the forecast backhaul needs over the next few years will be a major challenge. This white paper describes the technique of Air Division Duplexing (ADD), which makes use of MIMO and spatial multiplexing techniques to achieve simultaneous transmission and reception of data on each carrier frequency, and has been shown to achieve full duplex data rates1 in excess of 1 Gb/s in a 28 MHz channel
allocation2 in the microwave bands.
