The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi is set to inaugurate a first-of-its-kind 5G radio laboratory on campus, which is likely to reduce effects of exposure and radiation compared to the 3G/4G systems.  It has been set up at the Bharti School of Telecommunication Technology and Management, at IIT Delhi.

Professor Saif Khan Mohammed, an associate professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering, and his team have been researching on MIMO systems for the last five years.

This 5G base station prototype will be used for developing a complete 5G base station, which can possibly lead to the manufacturing of 5G base stations in India with support/collaboration from the industry. It will also be instrumental in generating skilled manpower.
