Metrology for Emerging Wireless Standards (MEWS)

Z43 is proud to take part in the EURAMET Project MEWS: Metrology for Emerging Wireless Standards, which was approved and started on October 1, 2022.

Together with the project coordinator Laboratoire national de métrologie et d'essais (LNE), altogether 16 project partners join forces to develop a robust measurement infrastructure for emerging wireless technologies. The project aims to (i) develop practical and efficient measurement methods required to enable normative standards to better match rapidly emerging radio technologies for 5G/6G product and system over-the-air testing, for wireless channels up to sub-THz, and for radiofrequency exposure assessment, (ii) incorporate it into relevant normative standards, and iii) develop metrological methods for traceable and efficient NR radio frequency exposure assessment. At the end of the project, the research results will be disseminated to standards development work of the technical committees CENELEC CLC/TC 106X, IEEE 802.15 SC Terahertz, 3GPP, and ETSI ISG mWT. 

The European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET) funding instrument will support MEWS for 36 months, as part of the Research & Innovation programme: Metrology Partnership. The European Partnership on Metrology – an essential implementation tool of the European Commission’s Horizon Europe co-funded by the Member States and the European Union – aims to break new ground by contributing to the development of self-sustaining coordinated metrology infrastructures.
