Since 2011, the IMT and France Brevets have been successfully collaborating on Mimo technology, a coding mechanism for high speed data transfer which can locate an application over 5G. Starting with 3 patents, 15 new patents have been submitted over 18 months of joint work, illustrating the effectiveness and productivity of this original approach. The IMT is now able to contribute to bringing the results of French public research on high speed 5G mobile telecommunications on international markets onto a more international level.
* 5G technology could allow mobile telecommunications data flows of many gigabits of data per second, i.e. up to 100 times faster than 4G, by 2020.
