Experimental activity

5G Broadcast demonstration during the European Championships 2018

Rai-CRITS experiments of feMBMS (3GPP Rel.14) in Aosta Valley

Rai-CRITS, in collaboration with the Technische Universität of Braunschweig (DE), is testing the most advanced precursor of 5G-broadcast technology, the feMBMS (Release 14 of the 3GPP standard). The technology was demonstrated in Valle d’Aosta during the European Championships, held in Glasgow and Berlin from 2 to 10 August 2018.

Active project

Mitigation techniques of the interference generated in TV distribution installations by 4G/5G signals in the 700 and 800 MHz bands

The activation in the UHF band of 4G/5G Base Stations can have in some areas an impact on TV reception, especially in case of community antenna installations. The adoption of proper interference mitigation techniques, such as the insertion of specifically designed filters at the head-end of the distribution network, allows to mimimise the effects in most situations.

Long term perspectives of DTT Convergence towards 5G: Applications of 3GPP Rel-14 to Italian scenarios

3GPP has defined in Release 14 the new eMBMS system, whose characteristics are well aligned to the technical requirements coming from the broadcast sector for TV services.
