For this project, the team was funded by the department of science and technology (DST) and the central government’s Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB). 

The electronics department of the Indian Institute of Technology (ISM), Dhanbad, has developed a fifth generation (5G) antenna for mobile phones that can eliminate data loss and enhance download speeds 10 times more than the current 4G phones.

The new technology is also expected to enhance live streaming speeds by 10 times.

As reported by TOI, the 5G antenna was developed by a team comprising three students — T Shreenath Reddy, Tanjir Alam, Mohammed Ameen — and two professors — Raghvendra Kumar Chaudhary and Ravi Gangwar.

The detailed research work for the new antenna is being sent to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a reputed journal of USA for publication.

Raghvendra Kumar Chaudhary said that once the article is published in the journal, it would be used by mobile manufacturers for commercial purpose.

5G will utilise three new technologies

Chaudhary explained that the current 4G LTE network uses multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) technology and offers peak data speeds of around 40 Mbps.

But 5G would probably be using three new technologies (Massive-MIMO, beam forming and cognitive radio technologies) to offer higher data speeds.

Hence, Chaudhary said, in order to use the new technology, manufacturers will have to make significant changes in infrastructure. The details of the changes would be published in the journal, he added.

For this project, the team was funded by the department of science and technology (DST) and the central government’s Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB).
