Blu Wireless joins the 5G Innovation Centre
Blu Wireless Technology has joined the University of Surrey's 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) as part of its SME Technology partner programme.
Due to open in September 2015, the 5GIC is said to be the UK's only research centre dedicated to the next generation of mobile communications. The centre aims to bring together leading academic expertise and key industry partners in a shared vision to develop standards and technology for fifth generation wireless networks.
Professor Rahim Tafazolli, director of 5GIC, said "With Blu Wireless joining the Centre, our collaborative efforts are further strengthened particularly in millimetric band technologies. We look forward to working with them and integrating their equipment and expertise into our new test bed."
Blu Wireless will work with the 5GIC to integrate its 'Lightning' millimetre wave gigabit modems within the 5GIC mobile testbed. Blu Wireless will also assist with general technical collaboration on requirements and technology for advanced baseband modems for the 5G millimeter-wave modem.
Mark Barrett, Blu Wireless cmo, said: "Our technology will enable 5G infrastructure and access applications and will help to drive the research that will underpin the 5G standards of the future."
