Ultra capacity wireless layer beyond 100 GHz based on millimeter wave traveling tubes

The ULTRAWAVE project is aimed at developing a high capacity backhaul that enables 5G cell densification by exploiting bands beyond 100 GHz. New travelling wave tubes delivering high power will allow the creation of an ultra capacity layer providing more than 100 Gbps per kilometer square in Point to Multi point at D-band (141 – 174.8 GHz) fed by novel G-band (300 GHz) Point to Point high capacity links. The ULTRAWAVE system is empowered by the convergence of three main technologies: vacuum electronics, solid-state electronics and photonics. This ULTRAWAVE layer will enable backhaul of hundreds of small and pico cells, no matter the density, opening scenarios for new network paradigms aiming at a full 5G implementation.


Traveling Wave Tube based W-band Wireless Networks with High Data Rate, Distribution, Spectrum and Energy Efficiency

The objective of the TWEETHER project is to set a milestone in the millimetre wave technology with the realization of the first W-band (92-95GHz) wireless system for distribution of high speed internet everywhere. The TWEETHER aim is to realise the millimetre wave Point multi Point segment to finally link fibre, and sub-6GHz distribution for a full three segment hybrid network, that is the most cost-effective architecture to reach mobile or fix final individual client. The TWEETHER system will provide indeed economical broadband connectivity with a capacity up to 10 Gbits/km2 and distribution of hundreds of Mbps to tens of terminals. This will allow the capacity and coverage challenges of current backhaul and access solutions to be overcome.   Follow @h2020tweether on   Twitter logo


Smart Antenna & Radio for Access and Backhaul for Advanced Network noDes

The SARABAND project aims at taking advantage of the Q-band frequency band (40,5 to 43,5 GHz) in a cost effective way to provide higher performing and integrated network nodes for the wireless backhaul of future mobile radio and last mile access for the digital divide by developing smart antennas and front-end radio modules. The use of millimeter waves, particularly at Q-band where 3GHz bandwidth has been regulated by EU, can bring large capacity with high throughputs, fast deployment, with lightweight and discrete equipment.


Fully-Converged Quintuple-Play Integrated Optical-Wireless Access Architectures

The FIVER Project develops and demonstrates quintuple-play capabilities (IP data, HDTV, phone, home security and control, and wireless services) in an integrated optical and radio network including integrated and simultaneous centralised transmission impairment compensation of the optical path and of the radio path. FIVER objective is to develop an integrated and streamlined network architecture that enables a centralised network management strategy.
