ASTRI demonstrates its latest technologies at PT EXPO China 2018 in Beijing

According to a recent press release, The Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute (ASTRI) is showcasing its latest technologies that deliver ‘Intelligence’, ‘Connected’ and ‘Trusted’ solutions at the PT EXPO China 2018 in Beijing.

At its exhibition booth, ASTRI is displaying technologies that facilitate the deployment of competitive services and innovative solutions across Hong Kong, the Great Bay Area and international markets. Among the solutions being showcased at the Expo, some of the selected technologies include:

  1. 5G C-RAN base station
    Utilising Centralised-Radio Access Network (C-RAN) architecture, ASTRI’s 5G base station solutions are software-based and very flexible. It is highly customisable for different requirements and evolving 5G standards. At the Expo, ASTRI and HeBei FarEast Communication (HBFEC) are jointly demonstrating the latest 3GPP Release 15-compliant 5G C-RAN base station and user equipment emulator based on off-the-shelve computer servers. The solution avoids the development cost for dedicated hardware platforms and allows centralised radio networks management through cloud-based processing. The demonstration showcases live 8K (7,680 × 4,320 pixels) Ultra-high Definition (UHD) video streaming via wideband 5G wireless data links.

  2. Next Generation Broadband Trunking Communication (B-TrunC) base station for Critical Communications
    LTE B-TrunC systems provide the next generation trunking air interface for bandwidth-efficient high throughput point-to-multipoint communications. This allows high throughput broadcasting services, such as video surveillance, data sharing and group video calls. This demonstration showcased HeBei FarEast Communication’s (HBFEC) commercial B-TrunC base stations powered by ASTRI’s awarding winning B-TrunC technologies which won a Gold Medal in the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva 2018. The demonstration showcases live wideband trunking service including group video calls to reveal the B-TrunC capabilities and applications.
  3. 4G small cell technology for commercialisation
    Small cell base station technologies provide simple and cost-efficient indoor coverage for public and private networks deployment. Sunnada’s commercial LTE small cell powered by ASTRI’s LTE physical layer solution was ranked no. 1 in the China Mobile 2015 small cell tendering. ASTRI’s LTE base station solutions also support LTE macrocells and C-RAN features with different hardware platforms. This demonstration showcases a series of LTE base stations products commercialised by Sunnada.
  4. AI-enabled Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) road safety and traffic management
    ASTRI is at the forefront of enabling technologies for connected cars. At the recent World IoT Expo 2018, ASTRI registered a great milestone with live demonstrations of C-V2X road safety applications on the open roads in Wuxi. ASTRI has a complete C-V2X networking system which addresses perspectives of ‘car’, ‘road’ and ‘network’ ─ enabling connected cars and ensuring better road safety. It also allows transport operators or City Governments to operate the roads and highways with enhanced traffic efficiency and safety considerations.
  5. 5G Core and Edge
    The advent of 5G will proliferate the markets with an infinite number of smart city and smart manufacturing applications including smart mobility, smart living, Industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT), and many more. A 5G Core Network forms its critical part, with Service-based Architecture (SBA) and scalability to enable feature-rich new applications. ASTRI’s 5G Core Solution addresses:
  • Connectivity: Virtual 5G Core Network Software complying with 3GPP Release 15 standards while delivering market-leading core network throughput
  • Edge Computing: Enabling delay-sensitive packets and data processing at edge cloud to support applications that require low latency, such as connected vehicles
  • Automation: 5G Network Orchestrator to provide network services and applications with simple, graphical user interfaces.
