The 5G-NR Test Bed is being developed in collaboration with IIT Madras, IIT Bombay, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Kanpur, IIT Delhi, IISc Bangalore, and SAMEER. This large program is funded by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to create a vibrant ecosystem of R&D engineers in India in the 5G technology areas. The goal of the program is to develop various hardware and software modules along with all necessary proprietary algorithms that are finally put together to create a test-bed that closely resembles a real-world 5G-NR products. The outcome of this project will be an end-to-end 5G-NR test-bed comprising of 5G Base Station and User Equipment that support the 5G use cases like enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), Ultra reliable and low latency communication (URLLC), and massive Machine Type Communication (MTC) including NB IoT services. As part of this, CEWiT is doing research and development on modules like 5G radio technologies-based Baseband, Layer 2 and 3 modules in the 5G access networks, Service architecture based 5G Core, a Management system that orchestrates the overall network. The ‘Indigenous 5G Testbed’ project is a three year effort which was kicked off in April of 2018. The multi-disciplined team has 25+ researchers/engineers in CEWiT and more than 200 engineers across the collaborating institutes along with 100+ students from various academic institutions are expected to get trained in the 5G technology.
