4th Network Wide Event in Lund

Two years after the MINTS project kick-off, we finally met in person. The virtual event curse was long, but at last, it was broken. The network-wide event in Lund was perfect! We had the pleasure of listening to leading researchers and renowned experts of the field, from massive MIMO to machine learning, millimeter-wave channel characterization, and ‘FAIR’ scientific data management. ...

Where to point the beam? – Local Area Networks (LAN)

Published on: Jul 30, 2021 Where to point the beam? – Local Area Networks (LAN) The earliest beamforming technique (Bartlett beamformer) dates back to World War II. Although beamforming techniques have advanced a lot since then, they have not been deployed in communication systems until recently. Beamforming is simply radiating or capturing energy from a specific direction using an array ...

Radio Detection and Ranging (RADAR)

Published on: July 19, 2021 All of us have heard about radar systems, such as military radars used for detecting and tracking aircraft or ships, as well as weather radars that identify the type of precipitation such as rain, snow or hail, and determine its motion and intensity. Apart from these applications, radars can also be used for monitoring vehicle ...

Have you ever heard (of) Beamforming?

Published on: May 28, 2021 In modern wireless communications, beamforming is a widely used technique to reduce the interference between multiple links and increase the signal-to-noise ratio. This technique can be interpreted as “pointing” the signal towards a specific device, but this definition is not always obvious and does not explain how it is done. To better understand this concept, ...

Channel Modeling Simulation for mmWave

Published on: May 21, 2021 Welcome to our latest blog. In this blog, we will discuss channel modeling in the mmWave frequency band. First, we will explain why channel modeling in mmWave is essential, and afterwards, we will describe how to use a Ray Tracer (RT) to model the channel. In the context of channel modeling simulations, we will introduce ...

Applications of mmWaves in 5G: Device Positioning and Localization

Published on: April 19, 2021 Welcome to our latest blog. In this blog, we will discuss one of the most promising applications that 5G and other mmWave technologies can offer: user device positioning and localization. Localization is the process of determining the location (position coordinates) of a user device in a given area. In general, localization with radio is done ...
