VTT manages international telecommunication project
VTT Group Manager Kyösti Rautiola holds an information transfer device operating at 10Mbit/s. A new device of this type is under design to deliver wireless services at a speed of no less than 1000 Mbit/s. In the background equipment for examining the extremely fast information transfer devices of the future.
The research institutes define together the specifications of the new data transmission system. They design the transceiver components, which are necessary for very high speed data transmission, to a completely new 60 gigahertz frequency area. The designed data rate will be 1000 megabits per second (or 1 gigabit per second).
The fastest of the current wireless local area networks operate at 5 gigahertz frequency area. They can achieve a maximum data rate of about 100 megabits per second. The current mobile cellular networks, on the other hand, operate at 1 gigahertz to 2 gigahertz frequency areas achieving a maximum data rate of about 2 megabits per second.
The project is partly based on researcher exchange between VTT and BWRC. One of the aims is to implement an experimental facility to test the design results in practice. The project is financed by Tekes, VTT, Asperation, Elektrobit Microwave, Filtronic, Nokia and the Finnish Defence Forces.
