Waveform for 5G low-power wide-area IoT networks
Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, has announced that field trials of its new Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technology, a waveform tailored for Internet of Things (IoT) applications, showed significant performance gains in coverage, data-rate flexibility and power consumption compared to leading LPWA technologies. Leti’s LPWA approach includes its patented Turbo-FSK waveform, a flexible approach to the physical layer.
Duo collaborate to accelerate 5G NR chipset development
Keysight Technologies is extending its collaboration with Media Tek as the two companies push to accelerate 5G New Radio (NR) chipset development and testing of 5G NR protocol stacks. Media Tek will use Keysight’s 5G protocol R&D toolset for Layer 2 and Layer 3 protocol development, pre-silicon deployment, and full stack chipset validation across sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies using the latest 3GPP Release 15 5G NR standards.
Products enabling networks to support 5G speeds showcased at NGON
How evolving architectures are key for 5G roll out has been addressed by the optical transceiver specialist ProLabs at Next Generation Optical Networking 2018 (NGON) in Nice. Speaking on the opening day of NGON, Anthony Clarkson, Technologist at ProLabs, recommended three simple steps that should not be ignored by operators when accommodating the fifth-gen mobile network.
Mobile industry works together to deliver complete 5G system standard
The completion of the standalone (SA) Release 15 5G specifications has been approved by the 3GPP TSG #80 Plenary Meeting. After the release of the 5G NR specifications for non-standalone (NSA) operation in December 2017, another essential step of standardisation of 5G has been successfully completed.
Partnership for 5G- and ROS2-based factories of the future
ADLINK Technology has joined forces with Fair Friend Group (FFG) to develop the ROS2 toward Converged 5G for Factories of the Future project. The collaboration integrates wireless 5G network technologies with ROS2 (Robot Operating System 2) platforms to provide system architecture enabling real-time control and reliable communication.
Interconnection tech for next-gen 5G mobile communications
Significantly higher data rates and volumes together with high power densities are resulting in rising requirements for interconnection technologies, too. The new 5G mobile communications generation is undoubtedly an overarching and defining trend here, with applications ranging from infrastructure (base stations) to terminal devices (mobile phones), as well as real-time automation scenarios.
Collaboration to deliver OTN solution for 5G
A collaboration has been announced by Microsemi with Chia Telecom Beijing Research Institute to define and develop next-gen optical transport solutions to meet the requirements of 5G.
0.45um GaN power process for 5G applications
To support current and future 5G applications, WIN Semiconductors has expanded its gallium nitride (GaN) process capabilities to include a 0.45um-gate technology. The NP45-11 GaN-on-SiC process from WIN Semiconductors allows customers to design hybrid Doherty power amplifiers used in 5G applications including MIMO (multiple-input and multiple-output) wireless antenna systems. MIMO base stations often combine Doherty power amplifiers with linearis...
5G wireless data transmission in ultra-high-mobility environment
NTT DOCOMO, INC. has announced that together with NEC Corporation and Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) it has achieved what is believed to be the world's first successful 28GHz wireless data transmission between a 5G base station and a 5G mobile station in 5G field trials using a car moving at 305km/h.
