Anite’s channel emulation and protocol expertise to contribute to 5G research
Anite’s leading channel emulation and protocol testing expertise will contribute to the development of next-generation 5G technology. Many candidate technologies are currently being considered for future 5G standards and a common theme across these proposals is the increasingly complex interactions between wireless devices. Wireless researchers find it essential to accurately simulate the protocol and radio conditions of potential 5G network environments in order to evaluate the technology and optimise the performance of next-generation networks and devices.
At the heart of the 5GIC, which is backed by both the UK government and leading global industry players, is a state-of-the-art testbed for trialling emerging 5G ideas, proving concepts, validating standards and vendor inter-operability testing.
Several other universities and international research projects including METIS and Virtuoso have called upon Anite’s wireless expertise and test solutions to progress their research into 5G. Earlier this year, Anite announced that the Anite-led task group within the METIS project finalised the world’s first 5G radio channel models, which will help to accelerate the development of 5G radio access technologies and future mobile industry standards. The Virtuoso project benefits from Anite’s Virtual Drive Testing Modelling Tool, which uses Anite’s Propsim Channel Emulator and the Anite 9000 network simulator to “virtually” recreate the field environment in the laboratory.
Professor Rahim Tafazolli, Head of the 5G Innovation Centre commented, “Anite’s contribution to our 5G research programme will enable the development and testing of future technologies in a real environment and in an end to end manner.”
