5G progress demonstrated using CommAgility kit

Wireless Telecom Group subsidiary CommAgility is participating in the EC’s COHERENT research project, which is developing technology for 5G wireless networks. The project uses CommAgility’s SmallCellPHY and SmallCellSTACK protocol stack running on its AMC-K2L-RF2 processing platform.

COHERENT, a Horizon 2020 5G-PPP project funded by the European Commission, aims to research, develop and showcase a unified programmable control framework for 5G heterogeneous radio access networks.

Dr Tao Chen, COHERENT’s coordinator and a senior researcher at VTT Technical Research Centre, said: “Verifying the COHERENT concept in the commercial LTE platform is an important milestone of the project. CommAgility’s software and hardware made it possible.”

Dimitri Marandin, LTE Systems Architect at CommAgility, said: “Having the domain knowledge and expertise to make adaptations in software, we are very happy to support research projects in the mobile communication domain and to contribute to 5G development.”

CommAgility attended the recent European Conference on Networks and Communications in Finland, where it demonstrated COHERENT project results with its hardware and integrated software.
