Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: 5G- Broadband MillimeterWave Communication

Acronym: 5G-BMW
Main Objective:
The research proposal targets the ICT domain and aims to address higher frequencies for 5th Generation mobile networks. In contrast to 4G networks, 5G network should achieve 1000 times more system capacity. It is widely accepted that there are three major ways to get several orders of this magnitude in throughput gain, namely extreme densification of infrastructure, large quantities of new bandwidth, and many more antennas, allowing a throughput gain in the “spatial” dimension.
