mmWave: Next-Generation Wireless Prototyping

June 8, 2016 at 2:00pm EDT

Sponsored by:

Consumers' demand for increased data rates continue to drive the requirements for next generation wireless systems to increased bandwidths. Several frequency bands above 24 GHz that offer multi GHz of bandwidth are now being considered for mobility applications. As researchers define the path forward they need access to open, reconfigurable platforms that enable both early channel sounding research and advanced prototyping of real-time 2-way communications protocols with maximum reuse. New advances in RF, ADC and DAC, and FPGA technologies provide the building blocks necessary to fully exercise this new spectrum.

In this webinar, we will cover some of the leading technologies and research results from cutting edge mmWave prototypes.  Real time over the air demonstrations have resulted in successfully achieving data rates above 14 Gbps which is laying the ground work for further field trials.  Join us to learn more about the frequencies being considered and how you can begin building field-ready mmWave prototypes that span channel sounding and communications.

Why Attend?
  • Gain exposure to the latest approaches in wireless research to solve the challenges of next generation 5G wireless communications
  • Learn how top researchers in academia and industry are working together to solve future of wireless communications in mmwave 
  • Explore how a system design approach can be applied from engineering education to advanced research 
  • Find out how engineers are reducing the time from theory to results by prototying their results in a real-world environment
