Multi-cell joint processing

One of the key characteristics of mobile communication systems is the overlap between nearby radio cells, which becomes more prevalent as we move towards increasingly dense and heterogeneous networks.


With ever increasing signal processing capabilities, it becomes possible to manage this overlap in order to reduce interference effects, or to actively combine signals across multiple cells in order to boost capacity and data rates.

This work area focuses on advanced signal processing (detection and estimation) techniques that maximise capacity in a dense network environment, taking into consideration both high numbers of cells and also high numbers of antennas (massive MIMO).
