Traffic on telecommunication networks is currently growing by around 40 % each year and will soon lead to a capacity crunch unless new technologies are introduced to maintain quality and prevent network disruption. MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) antenna transmission is a technology that offers increased capacity and quality of telecommunication networks.

Chong Li’s talk, entitled ‘Development of 4G/5G MIMO OTA Test Platform Using Software-Defined Radio’ was given at the 41st Institute in Qingdao, China, on 6 September 2016. He described the MIMO test platform developed in EMRP project Metrology for optical and RF communication systems (IND51 MORSE), which is under further development in EMPIR project Metrology for 5G communications (14IND10 MET5G). These two projects aim to develop the traceable methods for the MIMO transmission and power measurements. 

The 41st Institute is the largest test instrument manufacturer in China and its products include spectrum analysers, vector network analysers and many other instruments. Chong Li also met the CTO of the 41st Institute, Prof Fushun Nian, and discussed potential areas for collaboration.
