Gbps Wireless Communications and Applications

PI: Prof Yeo Kiat Seng

Currently, the fiber optic network is the best choice to fulfill long distance and high data rate communications. However, the fiber based network is expensive and difficult to splice. In addition, it requires big budget to build and maintain and it is hard to upgrade when finished. In this project, a new wireless communication system using 60GHz millimeter-wave band will be designed and implemented for smart cities. The proposed design focuses on the multi-gigabit outdoor building-to-building data transfer applications up to a distance of 1,000m. This will be the first gigabit wireless communication system in the world that can transmit and receive data over a long distance. The proposed system provides an alternative solution to upgrade existing networks without introducing any building renovation or external network laying works.
