Second DUPLO Workshop

  DUPLO Workshop on Full-Duplex Radios and Systems

in VTC2015-Spring Conference,

11-14 May 2015, Glasgow, Scotland



The foreseen huge growth in mobile and wireless traffic volume and number ofwirelessly connected devices by 2020 call for new innovative solutions that can exploit the finite radio resources more efficiently. Full-duplex wireless transmission, where a node can send andreceive at the same time in the same frequency band, opens new possibilities forimproving wireless communication system performance. The full-duplex transmissionparadigm has several potential use cases in wireless networks, including e.g.,backhaul connections, relays, and connections between base stations and devices.However, the paradigm sets challenges to wireless transceiver implementation dueto very large self-interference cancellation requirement in the full-duplex transceiver.Successful solving of the implementation challenges paves path for introducing full-duplextransmission paradigm to future 5G systems.

This workshop will look at latest advances in research and development of novel full-duplex transceiver solutions and system applications and discuss applicability of the technology for future evolution of wireless communications systems.
