Welcome to the WWRF web site!

The WWRF website is the place to find out more about our current, future and past activities. This includes important information on upcoming events such as our special workshops at IEEE Healthcom and IEEE VTC Fall. Globally there is a rush of activity in development and experimentation with 5G technologies, and an ongoing debate as to how to meet the requirements of the various vertical industries that will make use of 5G. WWRF members are closely involved in all these discussions, and publications such as our Outlook series are a good guide to them.

The Forum

Join WWRF as a member

In addition to the VIP programme of working groups focused on vertical industry requirements, new working groups are being set up to address key technology questions, such as the use of higher frequencies above 5GHz and the application of network slicing to 5G networks. Discussion of these questions will be a highlight of our next WWRF meeting, WWRF37 in Kassel, Germany on 5-7 October, which would be a great place to introduce your organization to WWRF if you are not already a member. Of course, the website also contains all the required information for prospective members, including form and details of membership fees and benefits.

Mimo Technologies

MIMO techniques have become very popular in modern wireless communication systems. It is however very difficult to measure and model MIMO channels with multiple transmitting and receiving antennas, due to many technical limitations and challenges such as accurate antenna synchronization, super-fast data measurement and storage, and parallel data processing.  >>>
