IEEE COMMUNICATIONS SOCIETY, Winnipeg Section, is hosting the following technical seminar.

You are welcome to attend.

TITLE: Waveforms and Coding Methods for New Radio in 5G

SPEAKER: Dr. Nandana Rajatheva

DATE: Tuesday, 31 January 2017

TIME: 1:30 pm

PLACE: Room EITC E2-160, EITC, University of Manitoba, Fort Garry Campus

ORGANIZER: IEEE Communications Society (Winnipeg Section)


Cellular systems are expected to employ higher frequencies going into mmWaves. Given this there are justifications to consider different waveforms than the well known OFDM especially in massive MIMO scenarios. Therefore we have considered the performance of single carrier schemes in a variety of channel configurations including peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) issues. In addition as the standardization is going on in 5G within 3GPP, various channel coding methods have been analyzed in terms of their block and bit error rates. We consider Turbo, LDPC and Polar codes as the main schemes. These are investigated with respect to the suitable rates, block lengths by proper design for comparison.

Nandana Rajatheva (SM’01) received the B.Sc. degree in Electronics and Telecommunication engineering (with first-class honors) from the Universityof Moratuwa, Moratuwa, Sri Lanka, in 1987 and the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. degrees from the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB, Canada, in 1991 and 1995, respectively. He is an Adjunct Professor at the Centre for Wireless Communications, University of Oulu, Finland. His research interests include waveforms and channel coding for 5G and resource allocation for cellular systems as well as smart grid communications. He worked in several European and Finnish projects such as METIS related to the development of 5G. Dr. Rajatheva is a Senior Member of the IEEE Communications and Vehicular Technology Societies.
