Rohde & Schwarz Inc., an industry leader in mobile wireless test, has announced that it will demonstrate several key test systems for the development and test of 5G components and systems at this year’s CTIA Super Mobility 2015. These systems will be showcased at the Rohde & Schwarz booth (space #3249) and as part of the CTIA sponsored 5G Innovation Lab (space #4315).
Keysight Technologies is hosting a complimentary 5G Symposium on Sept. 3. Keysight technical experts will discuss the test and metrology challenges regarding current and future 5G standards development, technical requirements, tools and solutions.
A consortium of Telecom industry vendors, IT companies, small and medium-sized enterprises and academic organisations in Europe has been awarded €8 million research funding to develop the infrastructure required to support the future 5G network and communication systems.
Anite, a global leader in wireless equipment testing technology, announced that it has joined the 5G Innovation Centre at the University of Surrey (“5GIC”), the largest UK academic research centre dedicated to the development of the next generation of mobile and wireless communications.
Rohde and Schwarz is collaborating with NTT DOCOMO regarding technological development of 5G mobile communication, which will include experimental trials of test and measurement instruments from Rohde and Schwarz covering multiple aspects of 5G technologies.
Linear Technology announces the LTC5549, a double-balanced mixer that can operate either as an up-converter or down-converter, with a very wide RF frequency range from 2 to 14 GHz. The LTC5549 offers exceptionally high linearity of 24.4 dBm IIP3 at 9 GHz.
Keysight Technologies Inc. affirmed its technology leadership in 5G wireless research with the introduction of the 5G channel sounding Reference Solution. The new Reference Solution is designed for accelerating advanced research of millimeter-wave 5G channel models and includes ultra-broadband and MIMO, key requirements to measure the millimeter-wave channel and validate new air interface standards.
Europe reached a major milestone on the road towards 5G with the launch of the first phase projects of the European 5G Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP) on 1 July 2015. Huawei is a key contributor to this joint effort. The 5G-PPP initiative is expected to leverage a total of €3.5 billion in private investment, boosted by €700 million in EU funding.
Keysight Technologies Inc. announced that it signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with KT Corp. on May 20 at the KT R&D Center in Korea. The two companies will collaborate on 5G wireless communications and other related areas of interest.
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.
