European Commission Acknowledges Blu Wireless for its New Innovative Radar Platform

Blu Wireless Technology has been named by the European Commission as a key innovator in its newly introduced Innovation Radar Platform. The acknowledgement is bestowed as a result of the company's involvement in the Horizon 2020 framework, the largest research and innovation funding programme in Europe. More specifically within the 5G-XHaul project, which has proposed and is evaluating a converged optical and wireless transport network to flexibly connect small cells to the core network, Blu Wireless has developed and successfully demonstrated 60 GHz millimeter-wave backhaul networks. These are ideally suited for carrier grade super-fast, low latency and economically smart 5G gigabit connectivity for combined backhaul and broadband and are ready for deployment.

Partners alongside Blu Wireless involved in the 5G-XHaul project include Huawei, I2CAT, University of Bristol and Telefonica I&D. The Blu Wireless millimeter-wave technology provides a perfect complement to this syndicate of partners who have been chosen to lead the European initiative.
