    IEEE Spectrum [MR 03] 2021
    A new technology, self-interference cancellation (SIC), can reduce or eliminate loss of signal in a network when using the same frequency to send and receive data. Because the frequency spectrum is a limited resource, alternative methods of wireless communication is needed.
