5G PPP mmMAGIC demos @2nd Global 5G Event in Rome
5G PPP mmMAGIC showcased 5G mm-wave hardware demos on PAPR reduction for OFDM-based waveforms and also beamforming @ Second Global 5G Event 2016, Rome.
mmMAGIC had a great attendance to its booth from the visitors and experts from all corners of the globe, including Deputy Head of Cabinet of European Commissioner G. Oettinger, Thibaut Kleiner and CEO of Telefónica I + D, David del Val Latorre.
The main objective of this project is to develop and design new concepts for mobile radio access technology (RAT) for deployment in the 6-100 GHz range. This is envisaged as a key component in the 5G multi-RAT ecosystem and will be used as a foundation for global standardization.
The mmMAGIC project is co-funded by the European Commission’s 5G PPP program, bringing together major infrastructure vendors (Samsung, Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Intel, Nokia), major European operators (Orange, Telefonica), leading research institutes and universities (Fraunhofer HHI, CEA LETI, IMDEA Networks, Universities Aalto, Bristol, Chalmers and Dresden), measurement equipment vendors (Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz) and one SME (Qamcom).
mmMAGIC is led and coordinated by Samsung. Ericsson acts as technical manager while Intel, Fraunhofer HHI, Nokia, Huawei and Samsung will each lead one of the five technical work packages of the project.
