Future Wireless AccessApr 09 2012 · 0 comments · Phase I Project
The wireless access networks projects develop the core technologies for future wireless connectivity with the aim beyond the existing systems. The key challenges include the increasing data rates and requirements for improved connectivity. Therefore, solutions for capacity and coverage improvement are needed.
Networks of 2020 (NETS2020) project is a strategic wireless communication system research project covering the future development and evolution of cellular communication systems including IMT-Advanced (IMT-A), its further evolution and its integration with other communication and data networks. The main emphasis is on evolving wireless network topologies, such as relay based and device-to-device connections, and on distributed algorithms performing automated network management tasks on networks with such novel topologies. The research is carried out in close cooperation with the best Chinese universities and research institutes in the field to enable smooth application of the technology in evolving standards.
The JADE project is a strategic research project funded by Tekes, VTT, and several industry partners in Finland. The main objective of the JADE project is to investigate the energy consumption problem in the heterogeneous structure of International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT)-Advanced systems, and to design and develop novel link and system level solutions leading to significant energy efficiency improvement in 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) and LTE-Advanced systems.
The JADE project is conducted under the Sino-Finland ICT Alliance Framework, which is initialized by Ministry of Employment and Economy at Finland and Ministry of Science and Technologies at China from June 2010. The Chinese research partners of JADE include Shanghai Research Center for Wireless Communications, Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, etc.
