Inhalt der Lehrveranstaltung

This year's topic of the mobile communications seminar is focusing on antennas as the enabler for wireless access networks of the future. 5G networks are expected to be significantly different from today's networks. The main requirements are: support up to 1000 times the capacity, reduce the latency of data delivery, flatten total energy consumption and finally make the network to be self-aware. These tasks will need new antennas designs in existing bands and completely new developments for the new spectra of 60GHz. Other new challenges are the support of remote radio locations, radio over fibre relays in moving mass transportation and finding new materials for the antenna itself to reduce the loss at very high frequencies. In this lecture, we will hear talks on how to reach these goals.

In the first part of the seminar, university researchers present their latest research in their field in 5G and byond and new applications as well as challenges for 5G and beyond.

In the second part of the seminar, students will read literature and research papers on antenna systems for 5G and beyond and reflect their results by their own presentations. Please choose two paper from our suggested paper list and report to Philipp Svoboda till end of March. Papers will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis. Note: you can also bring your own topic/paper, the list is only a suggestion.

The round of student talks will start after the Easter holidays on Thursdays with 2-3 Students per session. A list of dates will be put online after paper registration.

The attendance of the seminar is compulsory! We will keep records of your attendance. The seminar starts with invited talks, after that the students give self-prepared presentations (~30min). Each student has to prepare a written report that is due at the end of the semester (at the latest June 15!) (~15pages).

The talks will take place until June, more details will be announced in the course.
