Welcome to the Multimedia Wireless Networks (MWN) Lab at IIT Kanpur. Faculty and student members of MWN are involved in carrying out research on cutting edge technologies for Next Gen Wireless Networks, with a special emphasis on 5G. The aim of the lab is to develop robust techniques and transceiver architectures for reliable signal transmission and reception in mobile cellular and WiFi systems. The projects being carried out are focused on solving high impact challenging issues related to signal coding, communication and processing, and developing solutions that can be rapidly prototyped for baseband ASIC implementation in mobile wireless devices. The current focus areas of at MWN members are listed below.
