MAC, RRM and RAN management
The aim of this work area is to maximise the number of users in a resource limited network and orchestration of resources from different networks while satisfying expected quality of experience of each user.
In radio resource management, the focus is on better co-ordination among macro and small cells, controlled latency and lower energy usage. The Light MAC protocols enable smart and adaptive use of radio resources with a low signalling overhead and latency. The solutions will enable self-configuration and efficient user mobility management for dense cell networks. Joint design of wireless front- and backhaul architecture is an important part of this work area.
