NOVEL TRANSMIT AND DESIGN TECHNIQUES FOR BROADBAND WIRELESS NETWORKS

Abstract: 

The research on the design and implementation of next generation wireless networks continues to grow, as the demand for high data rates increases. In 2009, the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) physical layer protocol was adopted for the Long Term Evolution (LTE) of 3rd generation wireless networks.

The goal of this project is to study the major issues related with the latest advances in the area of broadband wireless communications and to propose efficient methods to achieve the requirements of next generation systems.

In this framework, the work-packages (WPs) will investigate:

  1. New transmission techniques for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO)-OFDMA networks, in order to increase overall capacity in a spectral efficient manner. Moreover, several feedback techniques will be compared in terms of reduced mobile terminal complexity.
  2. The performance of appropriate Radio Resource Management (RRM) strategies for next generation wireless networks (including heterogeneous networks), as well as optimal resource allocation in fair MIMO-OFDMA multi-hop networks.
  3. New design techniques regarding the optimal deployment of network nodes as well as the design of heterogeneous networks.
  4. Reduced hardware complexity techniques for mobile terminals that maintain high levels of performance and reliability.
  5. Field measurements for the power distribution of electromagnetic (E/M) radiation in different operational environments (with the use of neural networks), with particular emphasis to femtocells. 

The results that will be produced with the help of a simulation platform that will be developed in the framework of the project and field trials, is expected to lead to an integrated proposal regarding the efficient deployment of next generation wireless networks.

Research groups: National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), University of Peloponnese (UoP), University of Piraeus (UNIPI) and Aristotle University of Thessalonica (AUTH).
