This project aims to fundamentally characterise the practical information carrying capacity of future mm-wave wireless communication networks. The mm-wave spectrum offers 10-100 times the bandwidth used by current mobile networks, but comes with many challenges. An information theoretic model will be developed incorporating state of the art mm-wave channel models, and practical engineering implementation constraints. The expected outcome will be radically new network designs and data transmission technologies that unlock the spectrum by
enabling secure outdoor mobile cellular deployments with wide-spread coverage, supporting vastly greater traffic densities and data rates worth billions of dollars to the economy.
