A team of researchers at Queen's University Belfast's Centre for Wireless Innovation have won a global award for their work in creating a solution which will reduce the cost and complexity of 5G mobile networks.
"As a team, we are excited and delighted by this achievement. It is fantastic to get global recognition for our work, both among our peers in academia as well as the international mobile industry. We believe our research will reduce the cost of 5G infrastructure and it spurs us on to continue to ensure our research is among the best in the world and at the forefront of the mobile industry."
"We are very proud of our researchers, as three out of five finalists in this competition were from ECIT and winning this prestigious award is both fitting and well deserved. They are 'blazing a trail' in the area of mobile – specifically 5G – research and their solutions look set to have a global impact as 5G gradually replaces the 4G networks. We have a strong focus at Queen's that our research is impactful and of benefit to society – this is a great example of how academic research and inventions can have a major impact."
