CWmike writing Rice University scientists said Tuesday they have successfully demonstrated full duplex wireless technology that would allow a doubling of traffic on the network without the need for more cell towers. Ahutosh Professor Sabharwal told the innovative technology requires a minimal amount of new equipment for both mobile devices and networks. However, it requires new standards, which means it might not be available for several years as carriers move to networks 5G, has he said. By allowing a cell phone or other wireless device to transmit data and receive data over the same frequency, unlike today’s technology, the new standard could double the capacity of a network. Rice has created a research platform wireless open access (WARP) with open source software that provides a space for research with other organizations to innovate freely and discuss innovations in full-duplex.
