The next generation of mobile telecommunications networks, called 5G, is born with a vision that goes far beyond providing enhanced broadband but stands as
data access for people and services focusing on different verticals such as health, agriculture, entertainment, energy, mobility, homes, factories, and cities.
As a driver for a new wave of the digital economy with a profound impact on our society, 5G poses challenges related to the research, development, and deployment.
This seminar on 5G will give a glimpse on future trends, implementation, optimization issues and fields of application, including not only aspects of spectrum management but also the research efforts toward the application of millimeter wavebands and massive MIMO. More Information..
Date: 25-29 June
Location: Instituto de Telecomunicações, DEM, Faculdade de Engenharia, Universidade da Beira Interior
This traineeship aims to adress the basic concepts of electronics and mobile and wireless telecommunications, and corresponds to 25 hours (3 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon).
It will allow trainees to get acquainted with some of the innovative applications of electronics and communication networks, by immersing them in the research and development context of IT and conducting experiments. It will include theoretical sessions, lab work with assembly of electronics kits, basic techniques for producing printed circuit boards, experimental realization of received power measurements, binary output and other relevant measures in 4G and 5G mobile systems. They will have contact with the assembly of simple point-to-point / pointmultipoint connections and experimental performance verification, as well as with the main research and tech-nological challenges for the development of mobile and wireless communications in the 21st century (
(for example, small terrestrial cells and based on aerial drones, spectrum sharing, spatial processing and MIMO).
