IIT Hyderabad in collaboration with top Indian institutes including
IITM, CEWiT, IITD, IITK, IISC and SAMEER is building the largest 5G testbed of the country, with the support of Department of Telecommunications (DoT) Govt. of India. This project will create a 5G prototype and testing platform that will be developed under the guidance of IIT-H faculty.

The project will deliver an end-to-end 5G testbed comprising of 5G BS and UE nodes that support enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), Ultra low latency communication (URLLC), and massive MTC including NB IoT services. The operating frequently includes both sub 6 GHz and mmwave frequencies. The system will exceed IMT 2020 5G performance requirements including Low Mobility Large Cell (i.e.., LMLC) targets introduced by India at ITU.


This involves designing and fabricating multiple high-end components such as baseband processing units, remote radio heads, RF modules, core network, network interconnects and baseband algorithms and software.


Top Indian institutes and startups such as IITH, IITD, IITM, IITK, IITB, IISC, SAMEER, CEWiT with IITH being the integrator and the lead of the project.


Smart, dedicated, and enthusiastic students who want to work on cutting edge research problems and build hands-on experience with the latest tools and hardware. This project requires a big team working on cutting edge technology and tools with a goal of demonstrating of an end-to-end working cellular system.


Looking for Postdoctoral Fellows, Programmers, Hardware Engineers, Researchers and Algorithm developers who are interested to be a part of India's top 5G development team. As part of this team, you will be contributing in development of the algorithms/hardware architectures to build the country's largest 5G testbed. You will be working at IIT Hyderabad campus under the guidance of Professors and project leads.
