Flex5Gware booth pictures at the 2nd Global 5G Event

2016/11/10
Flex5Gware attended the 2nd Global 5G event to showcase some of the project outcomes in the form of proofs-of-concept:
  1. Compact low-profile antenna and on-chip frequency generator for 5G mobile beamforming systems @mmWave
  2. Full-duplex transceiver
  3. Context aware reconfigurable and programmable radio platform
  4. Virtualized base station for small cells
  5. Flexible resource allocation in a virtual RAN environment

Our booth was well attended and we received important visits like Telecom Italia Mobile's president and members from ITU as well as many researchers working in the field of 5G. A group picture was taken at the end of the event together with a picture that shows some visitors at the booth:
