5G technologies showcased by Bristol researchers at CYBERUK

10 April 2018

The latest 5G research in radio wave propagation modelling, smart cities, high-capacity radio waveforms and Gigabit transport connectivity will be highlighted by University of Bristol engineers at CYBERUK.

CYBERUK, which is the National Cyber Security Centre's (NCSC) flagship three-day event on cyber security, starts today [Tuesday 10 April] at the Manchester Central Convention Complex.

Members of the University's Communication Systems and Networks (CSN) Research Group will stage this year's Future Zone. The Zone highlights what's possible using a range of new, and potentially disruptive, wireless technologies. The introduction of 5G services from 2020 is set to revolutionise the way we work and live.

About CYBERUK 2018

CYBERUK 2018 is the National Cyber Security Centre's (NCSC) flagship event on cyber security. Over three days, 1800+ people will attend events covering both strategy (CYBERUK Leadership) and delivery (CYBERUK In Practice) – giving you up to date information and industry leading insights. 

About the Communication Systems and Networks (CSN) Group

The Communication Systems and Networks Research Group was formed in 1985 to address the research demands of the fixed and wireless communications sectors.  It combines fundamental academic research with a strong level of industrial application. The Group has well-equipped laboratories with state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment and first-class computational facilities. The Group is particularly well known for its pioneering work in topics such as antennas & propagation (multi-element channel sounders and ray-based propagation models), digital healthcare and connected and autonomous vehicles. Our leading research addresses topics such as the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles small-cell mmWave communications (backhaul & access), software-defined networks and the wireless/optical interface. These technologies are critical in the development of efficient and cost-effective 5G networks.

Researchers of the CSN Research Group are members of the the Smart Internet Lab. This is a new initiative aiming at building on strategic and applied research on key communications and digital technologies at Bristol, to create and permanently support, a hub for Internet Research with long lasting benefits for society and economy.

About 5G

5G is a reinvention of the internet for an always connected, interactive world. Above ground, it will include the next generation of wireless connectivity - offering massively increased speed, capacity and reliability compared to 3G and 4G. In addition, 5G represents a range of interconnected technologies which will supercharge the internet, offering a huge increase in bandwidth, allowing more things to connect at once, and reducing latency. This will enable near real-time interactivity across home, work and public spaces, adding up to a smarter internet where data is gathered and analysed locally as well as in the cloud.
