- CDT postgraduate students take to the skies 18 May 2017 Postgraduate students in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Communications have shown that whilst pursuing cutting-edge research for their PhDs, there are many opportunities to participate in exciting non-academic activities. A number of our postgraduates are members of the Bristol University Hot Air Balloon Society and hold key roles including President, Treasurer and Trainee Pilot. They took the new look balloon for it's first flight today.
- Energy efficiency is important to wireless and broadcast networks 10 May 2017 When a digital TV system operates with excess transmit power there is no benefit for either the user or broadcaster. New research has found that by deploying a spatially adaptive broadcast system, broadcast powers can be reduced by up to 35 per cent, reducing carbon emissions and saving money.
- Bristol and BT collaborate on massive MIMO trials for 5G wireless 27 February 2017 The quest for highly efficient 5G wireless connectivity has been given a boost thanks to a collaboration between a team of 5G engineers from the Universities of Bristol and Lund, National Instruments (NI), and BT, one of the world’s leading providers of communications services.
- New Non-Executive Chairman joins Bristol Is Open 24 January 2017 Graeme Hobbs has joined Bristol Is Open as its new Non-Executive Chairman, commencing his role from 2 January 2017. Together with the rest of the Board he will further develop the project in order to successfully make Bristol the first open programmable city in the world.
