The University of Warwick’s WMG department is trumpeting what it calls the latest 5G evaluation technology which can be used by mobile telecommunication operators, infrastructure suppliers, car manufacturers, and local councils.

WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group) says it has acquired the UK’s most advanced diagnostic and testing platform for a key part of the 5G spectrum – mmWave and that this technology promises to deliver a step change in the amount of data that can be wirelessly transmitted, opening up opportunities for a range of new services and products, including those associated with enabling connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).

This has been provided by a £250,000 WMG Centre HVM Catapult award for facilities and people alongside an equipment collaboration with National Instruments (NI) for their mmWave technology platform.

A team of researchers led by Dr Matthew Higgins, Associate Professor at WMG, is now integrating the new 5G mmWave technology platform from NI into their current projects.
