Duplex Mobile Phone Base Station Scheme Demonstrated

Today’s ‘half duplex’ radios send signals and receive signals, but can only perform one of these functions at a time. Full duplex radios have the potential to double spectral efficiency, but would also generate double the amount of interference.

Looking to address the problem, researchers from New York University (NYU) and Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland have conceived a method to improve spectrum efficiency by deploying a mix of half and full duplex radios in basestations.
