Department of Electronic and Instrumentation Science, Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU), Pune cordially invites you to attend the National Workshop on “MIMO Technology and 5G Wireless communication ” scheduled to be organized on February 13, 2024.

About National Workshop

The new generation (Fifth Generation) 5G wireless communication technology is to bring virtually all types of devices together including machines, objects, and devices under the wireless umbrella. 5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability to more number of users together. Compared to 4G LTE, 5G is designed to not only deliver faster, better mobile broadband services, but can also expand into new service areas such as mission-critical communications and connecting the massive IoT. 5G standards will enable wider bandwidths of operation by expanding the usage of spectrum resources, from sub-3 GHz that is used in 4G LTE to 100 GHz and beyond. 5G wireless standards can operate in both lower bands (e.g., sub-6 GHz) as well as mm Wave (e.g., 24 GHz and up), thus bringing in extreme data capacity, multi-Gbps throughput, and low latency of operation. 5G is based on OFDM (orthogonal frequency- division multiplexing), an FFT based method of modulating digital signals across several different channels to reduce interference. This new generation wireless standard uses 5G NR air interface alongside OFDM principles. Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) is being used in wireless communications as standard antenna of advances in MIMO Technology and its application in recent 5G wireless communication areas. The workshop is configuration — it is common for both mobile devices and networks to have multiple antennas to enhance connectivity by mitigating multipath fading of signals in wireless channels, and offer better speeds and users’ availability. MIMO algorithms come into play to control how data maps into antennas and where to focus energy in space. Both network and mobile devices need to have tight coordination among each other to make MIMO operational in seamless manner. Massive MIMO — that is an extension of existing MIMO technology — expands beyond the legacy systems by adding a much higher number of antennas on the basestation. The “massive” number of antennas helps focus energy that brings drastic improvements in throughput and efficiency. Along with the increased number of antennas, both the network and mobile devices implement more complex designs to coordinate MIMO operations. A daylong “National Workshop” is scheduled on Tuesday, 13 February 2024, at Department of Electronic and Instrumentation Sciences, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. The workshop will provide an overview
