Millimeter-wave communication

Forward thinking 5G and beyond research at IMDEA Networks receives major backing

14 January 2019 - 8:43pm -- seltime-editor

The Wireless Networking Group at IMDEA Networks, led by the Institute’s Research Director Dr. Joerg Widmer, has received major financial backing to pursue a new communication paradigm for future very high speed wireless networks. The Madrid-based team has set itself to explore communication in the extremely high frequency part of the radio spectrum, the millimeter wave band (mm-wave) from 30 to 300GHz, to vastly increase data rates of future wireless and mobile networks.

Demonstrating a 5G future

The 5TONIC co-creation laboratory recently gave an impressive demonstration of future 5G use cases to Julio Linares Lopez, chair of the GSMA’s strategy group and member of its Board. A group of 5TONIC’s senior executives from the member companies attended the event and presented the latest working examples of how 5TONIC is investigating the potential of 5G technology to drive new use cases in vertical markets.

Milimeter-wave technologies, the promise of 5G wireless communications

IMDEA Networks and Huawei Technologies have recently launched a joint research project to explore the synergies of two distinctive wireless technologies, which are both key components of the present and future of mobile communications. On the one hand, the project builds on everyday mobile networks such as WiFi and LTE. On the other hand, it integrates state-of-the-art wireless networks operating in the millimeter-wave band, as envisioned for future 5G networks. Their combination is crucial to enable the evolution of mobile networks, one of the most impactful technologies driving change and progress toward the “network society”.

The great ambition of the networked society is to connect everything, everywhere, all the time. But the ideal of seamless communications poses fundamental challenges to legacy networks that the new 5G communication networks currently under development need to solve. One of such challenges is supporting the significant growth of traffic demands. Next generation services such as mobile cloud service, gaming, social-networking applications and 3D immersive applications require massive capacity and higher data rates than current 4G networks are unable to sustain.

Dr. Joerg Widmer, Research Professor and Research Strategy Manager at IMDEA Networks Institute, is currently a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. As part of this fellowship he has been a guest of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf Steinmetz at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology in Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany), engaging in Mobile Communication Networks research and pushing joint scientific projects forward.

The following is a questionnaire in which Dr. Widmer’s research profile and the role of the research group that hosts him are described.
