PYEONGCHANG, Korea – Feb. 15, 2018 – Leti, a research institute of CEA Tech, today announced that the European and South Korean project, 5GCHAMPION, will demonstrate the world’s first 5G platform from Feb 20-22, during the 2018 Winter Games.
“This proof of concept is the first time that state-of-the-art terrestrial wireless communication, including future key enablers such as mmWave access, will be seamlessly combined with disruptive satellite communication,” said Dr. Emilio Calvanese Strinati, innovation and scientific director at Leti, and coordinator of the 5GCHAMPION project. “This technology will form a 5G network with multi-radio-access technologies (multi-RAT) that is optimized to serve user equipment in various applications.”
5GCHAMPION is an Horizon 2020 project financed by the European Commission and the Institute for Information and communication Technology Promotion (IITP) in Korea.
