World record claimed in 5G wireless spectrum efficiency
New research by engineers from the Universities of Bristol and Lund, working alongside National Instruments (NI), has demonstrated how a massive antenna system can offer a 12-fold increase in spectrum efficiency compared with current 4G cellular technology. Multiple antenna technology, referred to as MIMO, is already used in many Wi-Fi routers and 4G cellular phone systems.
Engineers set world record in 5G wireless spectrum efficiency

Millimetre wave - the enabler for 5G infrastructure
The availability of previously unused high frequency spectrum bands may be the enabling factor in wireless backhaul for the next generation of mobile networks, writes Sally Ward-Foxton.
In search of frequencies for future wireless comms
5G, the next generation of wireless communications, should be operational by 2020. However, to make the planned, significant performance boost over today’s networks possible, extensive preliminary investigations are required. Finding and characterising suitable transmission channels will play an important role. Rohde & Schwarz explain more.
EU and Brazil to work together on 5G mobile technology
The EU and Brazil signed an agreement to develop 5G, the next-gen of communication networks. The Commission also started work on an action plan to deploy the technology in the EU by 2020. In the future, everybody and everything will use 5G. By 2020, there will be 26 billion connected devices and 70% of people will own a smartphone. 5G will be the backbone of the EU Digital Single Market, industries of the future, modern public services and innova...
