Smart base stations for future 5G/6G wireless communications

The continuously growing need for higher data rates in wireless communications drives new applications into the mm-wave frequency domain. To achieve the data-rate objectives, future 5G/6G will employ a network of novel multi-antenna massive MIMO (multiple-input-multiple-output) base stations operating at frequencies of 28 GHz and higher. Traditional dense multi-beam phased-array antenna systems have major limitations when used in the domain of wireless infrastructure, due to the multi-user scenario and non-line-of-sight effects in wireless propagation channels. In addition, these antenna systems cannot comply with practical implementation requirements such as low power dissipation, low cost and small size. Therefore, new innovative smart antenna systems are required. This talk will introduce a new base station concept optimized for future mm-wave wireless communications.
