Researchers develop low-power, low-cost network for 5G connectivity

Researchers from the University of Waterloo have signed an important study on 5G. Researchers have managed to develop a 5G network that is very low in cost and energy consumption.

The world is slowly getting ready to switch to 5G technology, faster and smoother connection. Generally speaking, 5G comes to people’s minds, but this technology has many uses.

By 2025, 75 billion devices are expected to start using the Internet of Things (IoT). There is not yet enough network infrastructure to connect so many devices.


To overcome this problem, multi-gigahertz unlicensed bandwidth called mmWave can be used. It is possible to transfer 200 times more data than today’s cellular data systems. 5G networks will also use this wave range.

Omid Abari, an assistant professor at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science in Waterloo, said they had built a network system called mmX in their work to overcome the challenges of using mmWave. Ari mmX dramatically reduces costs and power consumption and allows mmWave networks to be used in all IoT applications, Ab Abari said.


“MmX will not only improve our Wi-Fi and wireless experience, it will enable faster communication across all IoT devices, but can also be used in virtual reality, autonomous vehicles, data centers, and wireless cellular networking applications, Ch said Ali Abedi of the Cheriton School of Computer Science. He also noted that Wi-Fi and lower-frequency devices in homes can be connected to this network.

With this technology, the parts inside autonomous vehicles can be connected wirelessly and the vehicles will become more mobile.

The research was announced at the ACM SIGCOMM 2019 conference.
