This topic aims at research and innovation in the field of the fifth-generation (5G) of mobile telecommunications technologies by leveraging on the results of Phase 1 of the 5G PPP (Public Private Partnership) initiative. The goal is to validate research results in proof of concepts and demonstrators having use cases from sectors such as eHealth, automotive, video/TV broadcast, and energy. The topic covers wireless access, and radio network architecture and technologies; high-capacity elastic optical networks; and software networks. The projects will be implemented as a programme and be expected to contribute with horizontal results to the programme integration process.
Innovating in new optical access network solutions based on integrated optical device prototypes; and developing flexible virtual network functions useful for operators, service providers, and third parties. These projects will be implemented as a programme and be expected to contribute with horizontal results to the programme integration process. Another objective is to research and innovate in access convergence using experimentation facilities from Taiwanese partners.
While 5G networks has an established roadmap towards technology validation, specifications and tests by industry, outstanding new scientific opportunities are
blooming in the field of networking research. The challenge is to support European scientific excellence notably in the DSP domain, and to bring the most promising long term research coming from the labs closer to fruition. This includes perspectives for the full exploitation of the spectrum potential, notably above 90Ghz, with new waves of technologies and knowledge, bringing wireless systems to the speed of optical technologies, and for new applications. It includes interaction with photonic systems as well as new cooperation networking and protocols, notably in the mobility context.
