At the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute's wireless and video coding experts present their latest developments. Visit us at Fraunhofer Booth 7G31 in Hall 7 during February 27 and March 2.
You find the following highlights at our booth 7G31:
Tile Based DASH Streaming for Virtual Reality with HEVC – Enabler for high quality 360 degree Video
Only high resolution content can give a sense of immersion in VR video applications, but the large amount of data poses a challenge to common transport systems and decoders.
Tile based DASH streaming with lightweight HEVC Tile Aggregation allows to easily adapt the 360 degree video data stream to the current user viewport.
This technology allows reducing throughput and decoder requirements significantly without complex transcoding.
5G: mobile networks of the next Generation
The fifth-generation mobile network assumes a key position in the communication landscape of the future. Autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, and the tactile Internet for wireless object control in real time require a quantum leap in efficiency, the scope of performance and the availability of mobile communication networks.
The new 5G wireless communication technology will be the basis for the digital infrastructure of the future. The industry plans to deploy the first 5G-capable networks starting in 2020. In a consortium with manufacturers, network operators, users and research institutions Fraunhofer HHI will realize prototypes of the communication technology infrastructure for 5G early on, allowing it to be experienced in the 5G testbed of Berlin.
At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Fraunhofer HHI presents the following 5G technologies:
- Active antenna arrays for massive MIMO signal processing
- Quadriga: 3D/4D quasi-deterministic channel mode
- Millimeter wave technology

Innsbruck quantum physicists have constructed a diode for magnetic fields and then tested it in the laboratory. The device, developed by the research groups led by the theorist Oriol Romero-Isart and the experimental physicist Gerhard Kirchmair, could open up a number of new applications.
Electric diodes are essential electronic components that conduct electricity in one direction but prevent conduction in the opposite one. They are found at the...
Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
