Imagination joins the 5G Innovation Centre
Imagination Technologies has joined the 5G Innovation Centre (5GIC) at the University of Surrey to collaborate with leading companies in exploring, developing and defining underlying technologies that will power the next-generation 5G mobile communications network.
Imagination says it will invest significant resources into 5GIC over the next five years to help 5GIC develop technologies that will be scalable and deployable by the widest possible semiconductor, electronics goods and service provider community.
Professor Rahim Tafazolli, director of the 5GIC and Institute of Communication Systems, said: "Imagination complements the other members, which will enable us to address not only the operator and device manufacturers but, thanks to Imagination, also the needs of the global semiconductor industry."
The 5GIC is a UK-based research centre dedicated to enabling the next generation of mobile communications. Other members of the 5GIC include major telecom service providers and mobile device manufacturers.
5G will be a flexible infrastructure capable of handling consumers' increasing demands for mobile data and providing ubiquitous connectivity for emerging markets such as the IoT.
Hossein Yassaie, ceo of Imagination, said. "5G will deliver more efficiency, lower power and better robustness – but also connect everything in the world of IoT. We look forward to working with 5GIC and partners around the world to help deliver this important global technology."
