Summary

5Gwireless is a multi-partner European Training Network (ETN) project, within the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITNs).

5Gwireless was launched in January 2015, is focused on studying and designing Innovative Architectures, Wireless Technologies and Tools for High Capacity and Sustainable 5G Ultra-Dense Cellular Networks.

5Gwireless is a fully-integrated and multi-disciplinary network of 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) working in 10 research institutions distributed in 6 European countries. The consortium is formed by 4 Universities, 1 Research Center and 5 Private Companies.

5Gwireless offers a cross-sectoral environment to 15 ESRs, in order to shape their long-term research view and to allow them to get fundamental methodological tools on various research fields and novel concepts, such as, cell-less/device-centric architectures, ultra-dense networks and mmW communications.

Project Objectives

5Gwireless aims at proposing, studying, optimizing, quantitatively assessing and comparing advantages and disadvantages of radically-changing but little understood architectures, topologies and technologies, which will significantly shape 5G standards and will enable the targeted 1000 times increase of spectral efficiency and 90% reduction of energy consumption.

The research objectives of 5Gwireless can be summarized as follows:

  • To analyze, design and optimize radically new network architectures and topologies for ultra-dense 5G networks, based on the device-centric and cell-less concepts.
  • To analyze, design and optimize radically new transmission technologies for 5G networks, based on massive and single-RF multi-antenna concepts and mmWave communications.
  • To introduce new methodological approaches to the analysis, design and optimization of 5G networks, based on stochastic geometry, point processes and random shape theory tools.
