CEA-Leti announced that a consortium of 15 leading telecommunications operators, vendors, research centers and academic institutions have launched “MiWaveS” (Millimeter-Wave Small Cell Access and Backhauling), a European collaborative project whose goal is to develop millimeter-wave (mmW) key radio technologies to provide multi-Gbps data rates to future 5th Generation cellular mobile networks users.
DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the completion of a series of extensive outdoor small cell backhaul propagation tests that have been conducted with a third party for street level characterization.
Although I have heard a lot about NIWeek in previous years, this was my first time attending the event. It was like a mini-IMS but with a lot of fun displays and demos ranging from robots to UAVs to rockets. The science enabled by NI hardware and software is amazing and this conference attracts a huge community of thousands of engineers and scientists from around the world. Read my review of the event including links to photos and videos.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced its 5G test summit with Future Mobile Communication Forum explored the status of next-generation 5G wireless communication systems. The June 24 forum in Beijing focused on the challenges test and measurement manufacturers face to support this rapidly evolving technology as well as the progress of research in the field.
Agilent Technologies Inc. announced an agreement to collaborate with China Mobile Communications Co. Ltd. Research Institute (CMRI) on the next–generation 5G wireless communication systems. China Mobile is the world’s largest mobile network operator and a market leader in 3G, 4G and next-generation wireless network development.
Nutaq announced today a 5G Massive MIMO focused partnership with Dr Sebastien Roy at the Université de Sherbrooke. The collaboration with Professor Roy and his team will provide wireless developers wishing to exploit the “massive effect” with a reference design comprised of baseband array processing algorithms which can easily scale with the large number of channels required for Massive MIMO applications.
Georgios Sklivanitis and Emrecan Demirors with the Software Defined Networks (SDN) Lab in the Department of Electrical Engineering of the State University of New York at Buffalo have won Nutaq's 2014 Software Defined Radio Academic US Contest.
