A 5G testbed in the Dutch province of North Groningen was officially launched on 9 June, when an international agreement was signed between the ten partner organizations who initiated the 5Groningen project.
Mobile Experts LLC released a report on Cloud RAN implementation, titled CRAN and VRAN 2016. This year, the Mobile Experts team has been able to identify some encouraging signs, with tests that prove the technical feasibility of virtual machines running the entire LTE stack.
Arralis has developed another world first with the launch of fully integrated transmit and receive 94 GHz core chips at IMS2016. The devices make the highly desirable attenuation window of 94 GHz available for commercial applications such as fully autonomous radar for drones and self-driving vehicles as well as ‘wireless fiber’ communication speeds for 5G backhaul.
The newest 802.11 standard, 802.11ax, is taking things one step further by promising to deliver that connectivity faster, over the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz band by utilizing OFDM, up to 1024 QAM, and multi-user MIMO. Read about its measurement challenges and solutions.
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.
