Due to significant tele-traffic growth in forthcoming 5G technology, it is essential to increase the service bandwidth and transmission radio frequency to millimeter wave. This comes with its own set problems due to higher path loss and other issues. This course encompasses the complete mmWave communication from the signal processing point of view. In this course, we will cover mmWave channel models, MIMO-OFDM in mmWave and Beamforming technology. We will also cover a rigorous MATLAB simulation to understand mmWave beamforming with MIMO-OFDM.INTENDED AUDIENCE : BTech final year, M.Tech students (enrolled or passed out), any employee of an organization which is involved in Physical layer (4G/5G) algorithms developmentPRE REQUISITE :Minimum: BE (ECE)SUPPORTED INDUSTRIES : Qualcomm Ltd., Mediatech Communication Private Ltd.
