Tokyo Institute of Technology and Fujitsu Achieve World’s Fastest Wireless Transmission Speeds of 56 Gbps
Tokyo Institute of Technology and Fujitsu today announced that, they have developed a CMOS wireless transceiver chip that can process signals at high speeds with little loss across a broad range of frequencies, from 72 to 100 gigahertz (GHz). Tokyo Institute of Technology and Fujitsu also developed technology to modularize it. With these developments, they succeeded in achieving wireless transmission speeds of 56 Gigabits per second (Gbps), the world’s fastest.
This technology makes it possible to have high-capacity wireless communications equipment that can be installed outdoors in applications where fiber-optic networks would be difficult to lay. In this development project, Tokyo Institute of Technology was primarily responsible for reducing transceiver-circuit losses and developing broadband technologies, while Fujitsu Laboratories mainly handled modularization technologies. Fujitsu Laboratories aims to have a commercial implementation of wireless trunk lines for cellular base stations around 2020.
