Includes testing of fixed mmW wireless at 28GHz and 39GHz.
Exploiting waveguide modes in copper lines at sub mmWave frequencies!
Qualcomm leading the effort. Unlicensed bands up to 60 GHz will be studied.
Good start. Perhaps future generations will have an antenna architecture more representative of the narrower and electronically steerable beams that will be used in actual systems. For example phased arrays or lens antenna arrays (one developed at UW-Madison shown below).
RCN co-PI Xinyu Zhang will be co-leading this effort as part of the UW2020 research awards just announced. Congratulations Xinyu!
Related: the first real-time demonstration of a 28 GHz multi-beam (4×2) multliuser MIMO prototype was done at the UW-Madison a year earlier on May 4, 2016. The UW-Madison prototype uses a lens array based architecture, as opposed to a phased array architecture in the NI prototype (and virtually all existing prototypes).
