Future Wireless Networks

Future Wireless Networks

Our research staff are internationally recognized and leading in future wireless communication systems. There is a strong focus on next generation (5G) wide-area wireless networks, as well as on small scale medical body-area communications. New technologies include mm-wave communications, cell densification, heterogeneous networks, massive MIMO, and spectrum sharing. Other areas of interest include random access networks and network information theory.
