Multiple awards to spectrum world champions
EITs 5G Massive MIMO researchers are best in class for sure! Doctoral student Steffen Malkowsky together with his research colleague Paul Harris from University of Bristol grabbed a real grand-slam at the 2016 NI Engineering Impact Awards ceremony in Austin, Texas, in the beginning of August. This event attracted more than 3,200 innovators, with thousands more watching the keynote events around the world over live streaming.
Steffen Malkowsky and Paul Harris won first prize in five separate categories in fierce competition with more than 100 other contributions. An absolutely incredible achievement! Steffen together with his Lund team-mates PhD-student Joao Vieira and senior researcher Liang Liu have all worked extremely hard during a long time to develop a Massive MIMO testbed. This hard work is now being so gracefully rewarded for the world record performance in spectral efficiency obtained using the University of Bristol instance of the testbed. Main supervisors of the Lund part of the project are professors Ove Edfors and Fredrik Tufvesson.
