METIS 5G channel model awarded by Wireless Innovation Forum
METIS project received the 2015 Wireless Innovation Forum Technology of the Year Award for the development of 5G Radio Channel Models.
METIS partners in the METIS channel measurement and modelling group: Anite (Chair), Ericsson, NTT DoCoMo, DoCoMo Euro-labs, Fraunhofer HHI, Nokia, Aalto University, University of Oulu, Elektrobit. The results of this European 7th framework project work are published in the public deliverable “METIS channel models“.
The Wireless Innovation Forum is a non-profit mutual benefit corporation dedicated to advocating for spectrum innovation, and advancing radio technologies that support essential or critical communications worldwide. Their Technology of the Year award is presented to an individual or organization for a breakthrough product or technology in the field of Software Defined or Cognitive Radio as selected by the members.
The motivation for the 2015 Technology of the Year award:
Because of its contribution to the future development of the next-generation communications (5G) by developing a complete new set of radio channels models based on realistic end-user scenarios and requirements. These new models will enable the testing and optimization of next-generation radio devices in a very wide set of the frequency spectrum, from relatively low frequencies in the current cellular frequency bands to centimeter and millimeter wave frequencies. These models will therefore help to speed up development of the next generation of wireless technology.
