Moving to a millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum in range of 30-300 GHz enables the utilization of multi-gigahertz bandwidth and offers an order of magnitude increase in achievable rate. The small wavelength allows a large number of antennas to be packed into transceivers with very small antenna spacing. Leveraging the large antenna arrays, mmWave systems can manipulate directional beamforming to produce high beamforming gain, which helps overcome large free-space pathloss of mmWave signals.
WNCG Profs. Gustavo de Veciana and Jeff Andrews recently received an award for Best Collaboration with the wireless group at Huawei. This international award goes to a funded university collaboration the company deems most impactful from among their offices and partner institutions worldwide.
“We are very pleased to accept this award,” Prof. de Veciana states. “The experience of working with engineers at Huawei has been very rewarding and fun.”
