Joint ICT KTN and Radio Technology SIG Event ‘Millimeter-Wave Radios: Challenges and Opportunities’

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

This FREE Cambridge Wireless and ICT KTN event will explore advanced millimeter-wave radio technology and signal processing, and the potential innovations in communications and sensing that could result as the potential benefits are driving renewed interest in mm-wave enabling technology and multi-antenna research. An agenda of prolific speakers will discuss the opportunities and challenges and engage the audience in an interactive panel session, with the addition of plentiful networking opportunities. Confirmed speakers include; <b>Prof. Yang Hao</b> at <b>Queen Mary University of London</b>, <b>Dr Tim Brown</b>, <b>5G Research Centre</b> at <b>University of Surrey</b>, <b>Andy Sutton</b> <b>Principal Network Architect, EE</b>, <b> William Carson</b> of <b>PA Consulting</b>, <b>Djamal Berraki </b> from the <b>University of Bristol</b> and <b>Mark Barrett</b> from <b>Blu Wireless Technology</b>.

About the event

 
The proliferation of “data hungry” multimedia applications is likely to soon outgrow the current capacity of cellular spectrum. Combined with the availability of large portions of lightly regulated and unregulated portions of spectrum (e.g. 57 to 64 GHz in the US), and the potential for novel sensing methods, this is driving renewed interest in millimetre-wave technology. Already WiGig chipsets are in the market for very short range LANs at 60 GHz, and production vehicles using adaptive cruise control with mm-wave radar sensing have been in the market for some years.
 
Using this vast amount of available spectrum, with its potential to enable gigabit outdoor “low cost” radio access, challenges are faced ranging from the complexities of handling mobility between very small cells, through propagation in an absorbent atmosphere, to the intricacies of manufacturing circuits. The potential benefits are driving renewed interest in mm-wave enabling technology and multi-antenna research.
