Projects

This page contains summary of the prototypes of wireless systems that

  • were built by me in the industry.

  • are being currently built by me .

You might want to check my resume for details of the work done in the projects after going through the summary below.

Design of 5G Testbed

We are building a 5G testbed that will incorporate Millimeter Wave, Massive MIMO and Full-duplex technologies. The complete hardware and software will be designed in-house and based on our own IP.

  • Designed at - IIT Kanpur.

  • Collaborating Institutions - IIT Madras, CeWiT, and IIT Hyderabad.

  • [Status] - Ongoing.

5G base station will have two sub-block: Baseband unit and Remote Radio Head.

Virtual Full-Duplex Relaying in Cellular Systems

We are building a relay system that will achieve the performance of full-duplex relaying using half-duplex relays. This system is based on a novel relaying protocol proposed by us recently. We plan to build a virtual full-duplex testbed using commercial off-the-shelf software defined radios. Please see my publications for the details of this protocol.

  • Designed at - IIT Kanpur.

  • [Status] - Ongoing.

4G Radio Access Network Testbed

A testbed consisting of four base stations and twelve users was built at IIT Madras to experimentally investigate the novel wireless communication algorithms in realistic fading and interference settings. As a part of this project, I designed, built and tested the testbed hardware from scratch, and also developed LTE PHY layer algorithms to exercise the testbed.

  • Designed at - Center of Excellence in Wireless Technology (CEWiT).

  • [Status] - Complete.

Design of WiMAX Base Station and User Equipment.

The objective was to build a WiMAX system using an off-the-shelf WCDMA radio. For this project, I built a common hardware platform for both base station and user equipment and also developed WiMAX physical layer algorithms.

  • Designed at - Midas Communications.

  • [Status] - Complete.
