5GNOW becomes 5G then as work goes into FANTASTIC future

5GNOW, part of the EU-funded Horizon2020 project, has wound up its work programme and will submit its findings to the 3GPP’s 5G meeting in September. Work will also go forward into the the FANTASTIC-5G project, which seeks to define a broader 5G ecosystem and commercialise technologies. 5GNOW was set up, under technical leadership from Bell Labs but with several other partners, to investigate an alternative air interface for 5G. Its full title was Non-Orthogonal Waveforms for Asynchronous Signalling. As that title…
