BARCELONA and WILMINGTON, Del., Feb. 16, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- In order to meet the challenging bandwidth and latency needs of 5G in a world with a multiple of the number of connected devices we see today, InterDigital, Inc. (Nasdaq:IDCC), a mobile technology research and development company, has innovated a number of working 5G access and network solutions that it is featuring at Mobile World Congress, the industry's premier conference, from February 22-25, 2016 in Barcelona. The demos will showcase live working 5G technology solutions more than five years ahead of broad market rollout – the latest chapter in the company's long history of groundbreaking mobile technology development years ahead of the market.
The company's presence at MWC 2016 will showcase a suite of advanced wireless technologies that help to enable more efficient wireless networks, a richer multimedia experience and new mobile broadband capabilities. In terms of product and technology demonstrations:
- InterDigital will showcase a working 5G access platform, its ultra mobile broadband solution. The platform uses Xilinx FPGAs and Infineon BGT radios to generate a wide bandwidth millimeter wave (mmW) radio access link, which incorporates advanced MIMO, and hybrid analog/digital beamforming technology.
- The transition to 5G will involve completely new ways of envisioning the architecture of network infrastructure. InterDigital will showcase a unique and innovative Next Generation Networks (NGN) architecture, with a flexible routing solution that reinvents the approach to IP-based services. The live demo uses software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) to improve network utilization.
- High speed and low latency are expected to be cornerstone 5G requirements, particularly for the delivery of virtual reality and augmented reality. InterDigital will highlight its EdgeHaulTM millimeter-wave mesh backhaul technology to deliver a live, functioning virtual reality telepresence use case.
- InterDigital will demo how to achieve better tracking and utilization of the available bandwidth, leading to better visual quality for the end user through its intelligent streaming solution that combines the state-of-the-art scalable coding standard with DASH-based adaptive streaming.
“InterDigital has a long history of leading the industry, from the first all-digital mobile telephony solutions to some of the first video demonstrations over wireless to one of the first high-performance HSPA chip technologies on the market. Our presence this year at Mobile World Congress, which is punctuated by live, working demos of technologies several years ahead of broad market adoption, once again highlights the strength of our company’s research and contributions to the industry,” said Lawrence F. Shay, Senior Executive Vice President, Future Wireless at InterDigital.
