Subject of course

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 complete new developments for the new spectra of 60GHz. Other new challanges 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 how to reach these goals.
