Indoor areas, such as offices or shopping malls, are a natural environment for initial millimeter-wave (mmWave) roll-outs. While we already have the technology that enables us to realize indoor mmWave deployments, there are many outstanding issues associated with the system-level design and planning for such. The objective of this manuscript is to bring together multiple strands of research to provide a comprehensive framework for the design and performance evaluation of indoor mmWave systems. The paper describes this framework by looking at its individual components, starting from ongoing 5th Generation wireless (5G) standardization efforts, that inform the entire framework, and subsequently moving on to experimentally-validated channel models, that feed into system-level evaluations and deployment planning. The latter two result in a set of overall insights on indoor mmWave deployment strategies and system configurations, from the feasible deployment densities, to beam management strategies, and necessary capacity extensions.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
