Today, at the IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC) in San Francisco, National Instruments (NI) publicly demonstrated a real-time, over-the-air prototype aligned with the Verizon 5G specification. The 28 GHz system uses OFDM with eight component carriers in a 2x2 downlink MU-MIMO configuration, with hybrid beamforming and a self-contained subframe, yielding a 5 Gbps peak throughput that is scalable to over 20 Gbps with eight MIMO streams.
Learn everything you need to know about mmWave technology in this 2 day online course was recorded in 2014 by IEEE Com Soc and covers the fundamental communications, circuits, antennas and propagation issues surrounding emerging 60 GHz wireless LAN and mmWave cellular/backhaul applications. The course was developed and delivered by Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaport, a pioneering researcher and educator in mmWave wireless communications, wireless systems and radio propagation. It is bundled with his eBook and full class notes with more than 300 pages of information. The course can be played at your own pace and stopped/repeated at any point since it is in video format with one file for each day.
