D-band radio 5G network technology

Project description

Solution for fast and cost-effective 5G wireless networks

Today’s industrial sector, operators and academics expect 5G wireless networks to provide wideband wireless access and omnipresent computing everywhere and at any time. However, this scenario requires a massive performance improvement in medium-range wireless infrastructures. This modernisation can only be achieved through the convergence of advanced semiconductor nanotechnology and a solid wireless infrastructure based on meshed networks with seamless fibre characteristics. The EU-funded DRAGON project will tackle the constraints of the existing E-band wireless backhaul solutions by exploiting the radio spectrum in D-band (130-174.8 GHz). It will develop a small-form-factor and high-capacity radio solution to accelerate optical systems to backhaul systems in a cost-affordable way. A power-efficient and silicon-based BiCMOS transceiver analogue front end that operates in D-band will allow cost-efficient telecommunications networks with seamless fibre performance.
