The move to mmWave frequencies in 5G offers the promise of massive bandwidth. But will it work? This is the topic of my MicroApp keynote presentation “Now you see me, now you don’t!”, free to all attendees on Tuesday morning, 10:05 on the MicroApps stage. We will explore where we are with mmWave radio links, provide a look at on- going research that will make it possible to use mmWave for 5G and offer opinions on how broadly mmWaves will be deployed and what challenges need to be overcome to make this a reality.
In the meantime, you may have seen the Facebook announcement about their exciting Aries project. Massive MIMO is one of the core technologies behind this and other 5G programs. Prep for the mmWave discussion by learning more about Massive MIMO from my webcast posted by IEEE Comms http://event.on24.com/wcc/r/1165444/419DA5FC5E8118E7D190D2AED010E3DE
I look forward to meeting you at IMS San Francisco to continue this discussion!
