Abstract: In the recent years, full duplex communication technology is progressing and finding its way to the standards. Full Duplex is a duplexing scheme that allows a communication device to simultaneously transmit and receive wireless signals on the same channel (frequency band). Enabled by means of self-interference and cross link interference management methodology, Full Duplex can significantly increase the throughput for each allocated channel and furthermore improve the total system capacity. The inherent capability of Full Duplex can provide an opportunity to reduce round-trip latency for data transmission, which is due to transmission of acknowledgment or feedback information and to implement an in-band and out-of-band relay system.

Cross link interference management for dynamic TDD or flexible duplex in cellular systems has been specified in 3GPP standardization, which can also be used for the cross link interference management for full duplex radios and paves the way for full duplex to become a part of networking application. Cross link interference management can be further studied for full duplex in the context of the 5G standards. As a further enhancement, self-interference management should become a study for future evolutions of the 5G standard.

This panel brings together leading experts from infrastructure and terminal manufacturers, chipset vendors and academia as well as leading parties in the standardizations of the wireless communications industry ecosystem. It provides an excellent chance for the industry players, researchers, and standardization experts to share their views about the full duplex radio from the angle of technology and standardization at the same time. We expect that this panel will put more light on the ongoing research and development progress in the area of the full duplex communication and how the way for standardization and commercial utilization can be paved.
