Anite Joins 5Gto10G Research Project in Finland
Thursday, November 12, 2015 | Comments

Anite, a wireless equipment testing technology company, joined the 5Gto10G research project led by the Centre for Wireless Communications at University of Oulu in Finland. Anite will contribute air-interface and channel emulation expertise to the research project alongside other leading industry organizations, including Huawei and Nokia.

Wide channel bandwidths will become necessary to provide the very high data rates that 5G promises to deliver. Researchers are looking to deploy 5G technologies at higher frequencies where large contiguous blocks of spectrum are more easily available on a global basis. The project will help to progress research into 5G technologies by investigating the radio interface and performing radio channel measurements on frequencies around 10 GHz.

Researchers are considering different candidate air-interface and radio access technologies for future 5G standards, and early channel model research and development will be essential to understand the way radio waves propagate at various frequencies. To evaluate the technology and optimize the performance of next-generation networks and devices, it is critical to accurately simulate the protocol and radio conditions of potential 5G network environments.

Several other universities and international research projects including METIS and Virtuoso have called on Anite’s wireless expertise and test solutions to progress their research into 5G. Earlier this year, Anite announced that the Anite-led task group within the METIS project finalized the world’s first 5G radio channel models, which will help to accelerate the development of 5G radio access technologies and future mobile industry standards.

“Anite’s recognized channel emulation expertise supports the goals of the 5Gto10G project,” said Professor Matti Latva-aho from the Centre for Wireless Communications at University of Oulu. “It is important to have leading industry partners, such as Anite, to steer the direction of the research towards real practical issues within 5G systems.”
