Swinburne University of Technology, Sarawak Campus and the IEEE Malaysia AP/MTT/EMC joint chapter will co-organize a seminar titled “Milimeter Wave Propagation for Fifth Generation (5G)” on the following date, time and venue:

  • Date: 3rd July 2019 (Wednesday)
  • Time: 2.30pm – 5.30pm
  • Venue: B312, Swinburne University of Technology, Sarawak Campus, Malaysia

The rapid increase of mobile data growth and the use of smartphones are creating exceptional challenges for wireless service providers to overcome a global bandwidth shortage. The use of millimetre wave frequencies for future outdoor cellular systems has gained a great interest in recent years since it has been proposed for the fifth generation (5G) standards.

One of the problems of employing such high frequency is the strong propagation impairment that mainly due to precipitation. In fact, when radio waves propagate through a rainy area, the scattering of electromagnetic energy produce significant additional path loss.

The talk emphasis on the role of fundamental properties such as raindrop size distribution towards the prediction of rain attenuation to overcome high signal fades.

Registration is FREE and all are welcome. Kindly RSVP at: if you are interested to attend this seminar
