University of Bristol Showcase (Potentially 5G) Full Duplex Tech

The University of Bristol will demonstrate a prototype for single antenna full–duplex radio, a candidate air interface technology for 5G which could double the capacity of wireless systems. “the preferred choice for operators when upgrading to 5G networks” Full-duplex radio is a transceiver which can transmit and receive at the same time and in the same frequency band. The prototype will have electrical balance duplexing to allow for this dual capability. A spokesperson claimed it will be ‘the preferred choice…

5Qs on 5G: with The University of Waterloo

The University of Waterloo’s 5G research has clearly caught the eye of the Canadian government  after it was given a $521,000 federal grant earlier this month. Inside5G spoke to Dr. Amir Keyvan Khandani, the project leader, who told us that his team are silent leaders in full duplex, and that he doesn’t rate massive MIMO. What is the main purpose and focus of your 5G activities? Our purpose is improving throughput with reasonable complexity, facilitating networking (user multiplexing) and improving security. This is academic research, but in…
