5G Wireless


NI is collaborating with top researchers focused on wireless research, specifically 5G wireless communications. The graphical system design approach combines LabVIEW Communications System Design software with the software defined radio (SDR) platform to help researchers innovate faster. Using this approach, engineers can reduce the time from theory to results by testing their designs in a real-world environment.

NI Is Paving the Way for 5G Wireless

5G Massive MIMO: From Theory to Reality

Massive multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) is an exciting area of 5G wireless research. For next-generation wireless data networks, it promises significant gains that offer the ability to accommodate more users at higher data rates with better reliability while consuming less power.

Make Your Concept a Reality With mmWave

To transition from concept to reality, researchers must prototype with real signals and waveforms. A rapidly expanding prototyping solution, known as millimeter wave (mmWave) or extremely high frequency (EHF), is the highest radio frequency band in practical use today. EHF includes frequencies from 30 GHz to 300 GHz.
