Enabling wide area mm-wave mobile broadband networks

Project: Research

Project Details


This project will define a new architecture and algorithms based around a network of access points with overlapping coverage that will support broadband, wide-area services to mobile users in mm-wave bands. The project will develop tools to characterise the information carrying capacity of this network, and tradeoffs between key parameters. The outcomes will be used by Mobile Network Operators in planning their deployments and developing their operations software to deliver diverse and flexible data services. The benefit will be an unlocking of radio spectrum beyond isolated hot spots, supporting vastly greater traffic densities and data rates worth billions of dollars to the economy.
