UK, Germany Collaborating on 5G Technology

UK Prime Minister David Cameron says his country is working with Germany to develop 5G cellular technology. Researchers from Dresden University, King’s College London, and the University of Surrey are collaborating on the initiative, designed to provide a wireless approach that is substantially faster than today’s 4G technology. This is one of three research areas designed to improve European telecommunications and advance the Internet of Things that Cameron has identified. The UK is offering £73 million in research funding for the latter. (SlashDot)(ZD Net)

UK Funds 5G Mobile Research

Mobile operators, infrastructure providers, and the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund have given the University of Surrey £35 million (about $56 million) to create a 5G Innovation Centre and develop energy-efficient, affordable fifth-generation wireless technologies that would be available commercially by 2020. Standards organizations haven’t defined 5G yet, but it is expected to yield speeds of up to 200 Mbps. Private companies contributing to the research include Huawei, Samsung, and Telefónica Europe.
