Project: Research direct

Project Details


The core concept of the BLUESPACE project is to exploit the added value of Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) in the Radio Access Network (RAN) with efficient optical beamforming interface for the pragmatic Ka-band wireless transmission band. Both being seamlessly integrable in next generation optical access network infrastructures with massive beam steering capabilities and with flexible network management control. The main objectives targeted by BLUESPACE are: to develop a truly viable and efficient path for 5G wireless communications with a 1000-fold increase in capacity, connectivity for over 1 billion users, strict latency control, and network software programming
