Abstract

In next generation systems and networks, the incorporation of mechanisms achieving robust, predictable and self-adaptive behavior with minimum cost will be a key requirement. Towards this goal we introduce the notion of the "self-growing network". The latter, in its initial deployment stage, is limited to a single dedicated purpose (energy-efficient networking, spectrum efficient communications, control and surveillance use, etc) but can evolve/grow into a multi-purpose, versatile infrastructure, that serves a broader range of applications by utilising combinations of self-x and cooperating features. The self-growing network paradigm considers (i) mechanisms for energy efficient interaction of the wireless network elements and (ii) mechanisms for the reliable and efficient evolvement towards later lifecycle phases. The Selfgrowing system incorporates the network(s) as well as user services and applications thus creating self-growing solutions applicable to wide range of purposes and impacting various beneficiaries, such as providers, consumers and end users.
