Speaker: Prof. Mike Faulkner
With the deployment of fourth generation (4G) wireless equipment almost complete, the focus of the research community has now switched to the fifth generation (5G), targeted for
commercialisation in 2020. Increased data rates, a renewed focus on the internet-of-things and the scarcity of spectrum will force operators into higher frequency bands despite deteriorating performance in terms of coverage. The new mm-wave bands under consideration offer both the opportunity for wider bandwidths and the challenge of providing the coverage. International research organisations are doing measurements to better understand the behavior of mm-wave signals in different wireless access environments. This presentation will describe the mm-wave measurement program, currently underway at Victoria University, which aims to identify performance issues under local conditions. The results have been used by Ericsson and Telstra as inputs to international standardization bodies, 3GPP and ITU.
Refreshments will be served at 1.30 PM
