Keysight Technologies, Inc. affirmed its technology leadership in 5G wireless research with their mmWave channel-sounding measurement demonstration at Mobile World Congress. Channel sounding for the mmWave frequency band is one of the critical steps required to enable 5G data rates, spectrum flexibility and ultra-broad bandwidth.
Cobham Wireless, formerly Aeroflex wireless business unit,will be demonstrating a number of new developments in 4G LTE-A network test, IP network and NFV system service validation, and the development of algorithms for a 5G air interface, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, March 2-5, 2015.
Ericsson and Chinese Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to launch joint research and development of 5G, the next generation of mobile technologies.
According to a new market data forecasts from ABI Research, it will take more than 5 years for 5G to reach 100 million subscriber mark—2 years longer than 4G. 4G subscriber growth was much faster than with previous generations, fueled by the capabilities of increasingly powerful smartphones and the availability of 4G devices. 5G subscriber growth will likely be a bit more muted at first due to the increased complexity of 5G cells and networks, but will pick up in 2023.
Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced that they have joined the NYU WIRELESS university research center as a key sponsor of the fundamental groundwork that the research center is laying for a new generation of wireless technologies, also known as 5G.
National Instruments (NI), provider of solutions that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world’s greatest engineering challenges, announced the LabVIEW Communications System Design Suite, which combines software defined radio(SDR) hardware with a comprehensive software design flow to help engineers prototype 5G systems.
Azimuth Systems, Inc., a leading provider of comprehensive real-world wireless test solutions for LTE-Advanced and beyond, announced general availability of the ACE™ RNX radio network emulation platform.
Ericsson and IBM announced a collaboration to jointly research phased-array antenna designs for 5G, allowing networks to provide customers with data speeds orders of magnitude faster than what is available currently.
