Enabling Practical Wireless Tb/s Communications with Next Generation Channel Coding
EPIC aims to develop a new generation of Forward-Error-Correction (FEC) codes in a manner that will serve as a fundamental enabler of practicable beyond 5G wireless Tb/s solutions. The project also aims to develop and utilize a disruptive FEC design allowing to advance state-of-the-art FEC schemes and to obtain the principal channel codes for beyond-5G (B5G) use-cases.
Micromachined terahertz systems (H2020: end date Jan-2018)
This H2020 project envisions the wide-spread use of low-cost THz technology in society, enabled by micro-machined heterogeneous integration platform, which provides an unprecedented way to highly-integrated, volume-manufacturable, reliable, re-configurable, cost- and energy-efficient sub-millimetre-wave and terahertz (THz) systems.
Innovative ultra-BROadband ubiquitous Wireless communications through terahertz transceivers (H2020: end date Jun-2018)
iBROW is a Horizon 2020 project to develop a novel, energy-efficient and compact ultra-broadband short-range wireless communication transceiver technology, seamlessly interfaced with optical fibre networks and capable of addressing envisaged future network needs. iBROW includes several TERAPOD partners (TU Braunschweig, Vivid, University of Glasgow and INESC).
Traveling Wave Tube based W-band Wireless Networks with High Data Rate, Distribution, Spectrum and Energy Efficiency (H2020: end date Dec-2017)
The objective of the TWEETHER project is to set a milestone in the millimetre wave technology with the realisation of the first W-band (92-95 GHz) wireless system for distribution of high capacity everywhere. Such a system, combined with the development of beyond state-of-the-art affordable millimetre wave devices, will overcome the economical obstacle that causes the digital divide and pave the way towards the full deployment of small cells.
What to do With the Wi-Fi Wild West (H2020: end date Dec-2017)
Wi-5 proposes an architecture based on an integrated and coordinated set of smart solutions. The overall approach includes definition of the use cases and requirements; consideration of which subsystems and protocols are needed and readily available and identification of which parts of the solution are missing and then to build the complete solution for the Wi-Fi network and test and validate the integrated system in an operational network.
