The U.S. Department of defense has allocated $2.7 million to mobile technology researchers to launch a city scale 5g spectrum sharing technology trial, and the country is looking for ways to improve its limited resource allocation.The test supervised by the project office of advanced wireless research platform (pawr) will focus on the spectrum coordination engine supported by AI developed by zylinium research to maximize 5g services in the 3.5GHz frequency band.
6.18 Activities have been fully launched to promote the activity portal summary:
Its purpose is to demonstrate how to use the new coordination system to optimize band allocation on a large scale and enable multiple operators to occupy the spectrum in the same channel.
The work extends zylinium research's work as a participant in DARPA's spectrum collaboration challenge last year. Its technology, which was previously only tested in a simulation environment, will now be deployed on a 5g network of government backed innovation test beds in Salt Lake City, Utah.
In the United States, the 3.5GHz band has been designated as a shared spectrum, with a dedicated access system to prevent interference with existing military users. In a press release, pawr noted that zylinium research's technology aims to complement, rather than replace, these systems to provide higher spectral efficiency.
Earlier this year, US President Donald Trump (Donald Trump) stressed spectrum sharing as a priority and urged increased adoption of the technology in the proposed budget for fiscal year 2021.
