MmWave channel estimation using sub6-GHz channel information

Due to hardware constraints, millimeter wave (mmWave) channel is not directly accessible and hence estimating mmWave channel for beamforming is difficult. Further, sub-6 GHz and mmWave systems are envisioned to work together, so assuming the knowledge of sub-6 GHz channel is reasonable.  Hence, it is worthwhile to investigate how the channel at sub-6 GHz and mmWave relate. This is particularly important for high mobility scenarios like vehicular communication, where frequent beam-training results in significant overhead.
 

Prof. Robert Heath Moderates Brooklyn 5G Summit Panel

5G technology will play a major role in the future of automotive systems. Exactly how this technology will be implemented is still up for debate. To discuss current research and possible directions for 5G, industry experts met in New York for the Brooklyn 5G Summit in April 2016.

WNCG Professors, Students and Postdoctoral Researchers Sweep GLOBECOM 2015 Paper Awards

IEEE GLOBECOM is one of two flagship conferences of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), together with IEEE ICC. Each year the conference attracts about 3,000 submitted scientific papers and dozens of proposals for industry events. A technical program committee of more than 1,500 experts provides more than 10,000 reviews, and from this a small fraction of the submitted papers are accepted for publication and presentation at the conference.

Texas Wireless Summit 2015 Explores the View to 5G

Texas Wireless Summit (TWS) 2015 explored next generation wireless networks in a day-long event focused on The View to 5G: From Applications to the Air Interface. The 13th annual TWS provided a forum on emerging technology and business models for industry leaders and academics. Hosted by WNCG, TWS offered direct access to cutting-edge research and innovations from industry leaders, investors, academics and startups.

Student Wins Marconi Society Young Scholar Award

WNCG student Ken Pesyna was selected as a 2015 Marconi Society Paul Baran Young Scholar. The award recognizes Pesyna’s academic achievements and leadership in the field of communications and information science. Pesyna was selected because his outstanding work in centimeter-accurate and power-efficient smartphone positioning, his excellent academic record and his demonstrated entrepreneurial capabilities.

WNCG Responds to FCC on Future of mmWave

As mobile wireless communications progress, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is exploring technologies that could lead to the emergence of a new generation of millimeter wave (mmWave) wireless spectrum by the year 2020. Before mmWave carrier frequencies can be applied to cellular networks, spectrum allocations and regulatory frameworks must be determined. 

WNCG Alum Chan-Byoung Chae Wins IEEE INFOCOM Best Demo

WNCG alumni, Prof. Chan-Byoung Chae, along with his students and colleagues from Canada, recently received the IEEE INFOCOM 2015 Best Demo Award. They received the award for their project entitled “Molecular MIMO Communication Link.”
