CSIRO wireless research partnership with China

Thursday, 29 January, 2009


CSIRO is to lead Australia’s largest research collaboration with China in the field of wireless and mobile communications networks.

CSIRO’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Centre will join forces with the Beijing University of Post and Telecommunications (BUPT) to establish the Australia–China Research Centre for Wireless Communications.

With $2m total funding, the collaboration will put both countries at the leading edge of research into future wireless communications technologies, including the development of 4G and 5G mobile networks.

The Research Director of the CSIRO ICT Centre’s Wireless Technologies Laboratory, Dr Jay Guo, says mobile and wireless broadband networks will revolutionise the way we conduct business, deliver services and communicate between communities and individuals.

“CSIRO’s wireless lab, based at Marsfield in Sydney, has comprehensive world-class capabilities in wireless communications including antennas, microwave and mm-wave technologies, signal processing and networking,” Dr Guo says.

CSIRO led the world in creating the ubiquitous wireless LAN technology (IEEE802.11.a/g) and, more recently, the world’s first 6 gigabit/s wireless link.

BUPT has world-leading expertise in time division duplexing (TDD) technologies, which enable up and down links to use the same frequency band. It led the development of the world-first 4G TDD trial network in China.

“The new Australia–China research centre will be a hub for long-term and broader collaboration between the wireless research communities in Australia and China,” says Dr Guo.
