‘Beam-steering’ technology takes mobile communications beyond 5G

The beam-steering antenna technology has been developed to increase the efficiency of fixed base station antenna at 5G (mmWave) and 6G, and can also be adapted for vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, vehicular radar, and satellite communications. Credit: University of Birmingham

Birmingham scientists have revealed a new beam-steering antenna that increases the efficiency of data transmission for ‘beyond 5G’—and opens up a range of frequencies for mobile communications that are inaccessible to currently used technologies.

Experimental results, presented today for the first time at the 3rd International Union of Radio Science Atlantic / Asia-Pacific Radio Science Meeting, show the device can provide continuous …
