On October 2, 6G@UT Faculty welcomed Erik Ekudden, Ericsson’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and Dr. Eric Wang, Research Leader of Ericsson Silicon Valley, to the University of Texas at Austin campus. The group discussed 6G and the future of mobile extended reality (XR) applications in the 2030 timeframe.
Millimeter wave is an essential and fundamental component for 5G mobile networks and AT&T’s plans. The 5G demo at TWS showcased the possibility and feasibility of millimeter wave radio access technology for the cellular networks of the future. Developed by Ericsson, the new systems incorporated key 5G technologies, including large system bandwidth, phased arrays with ultra-fast beam steering, feedback-based hybrid precoding, multi-user Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO), dynamic beam tracking and beam acquisition.
Texas Wireless Summit 2016 is thrilled to announce that this year's event will feature the first-ever public demonstration of AT&T and Ericsson's 5G millimeter wave technology.
