Workshops - January 2011 - London

A one-day project workshop was held at University College London (UCL), London, on the 19th of January 2011 and approximately 15 people attended this workshop. The workshop focused on two issues: UC4G testbed development and technical demonstration of (B)4G technologies.   
 
Two candidate technologies for future demonstration were discussed. One was the "Spatial Modulation" technique proposed by Prof. Harald Hass from the University of Edinburgh, the other was the "LTE Link Quality Evaluation" technique proposed by Mr Wuxiong Zhang from Shanghai Research Centre of Wireless Communications. Prof. Joe MaGeehan and Prof. Mark Beach from the University of Bristol, as well as Dr Tim Brown from the University of Surrey were invited to share their testbed design and building experiences.
