The future of wireless networking and telecommunications
Share this story

As Kanata emerges as a major tech cluster in Canadian telecommunications, Carleton University researchers like Richard Yu are helping found new technologies to support the thriving information technology (IT) industry. Yu is working on a large three-year project to make 5G communication networks — which are up to 100 times faster than 4G or LTE networks — more efficient. The research will be led by Carleton University in collaboration with the University of Manitoba, Huawei Technologies Canada and Remotronic. Yu’s research is just one part of Carleton’s commitment to supporting the IT sector in the Ottawa region. The university is also a partner in Centre of Excellence for Next Generation Networks, which helps position Ottawa as a global leader in telecommunications innovation.

"Wireless technologies have never been more vital to our society than they are today. Professor Yu's research will help to enhance 5G wireless networking and its integration into new and emerging technologies."
