The laboratory of fifth generation (5G) wireless communications aims to study and develop innovative solutions for the next generation of wireless communications systems. The lab is based at the Centre for Telecommunications Studies (CETUC) of PUC-Rio and conducts research activities in:

o   communication theory,

o   signal processing,

o   network architectures,

o   information and coding theory and

o   antennas, propagation and channel characterisation.

Its mission is to deliver innovative engineering solutions through liaison with industry, technology transfer, testbeds and training.
