Mm-Wave Communication Networks in Urban Environments

Project Description

This project is developing new architectures for next-generation mobile network deployments. A critical aspect is the use of the mm-wave spectrum which offers 10-100 times the bandwidth used by current mobile networks, but comes with many challenges. We are fundamentally characterising the practical information carrying capacity of these future mm-wave systems, and developing radically new network designs and data transmission technologies that unlock the spectrum by enabling secure outdoor mobile cellular deployments with wide-spread coverage, supporting vastly greater traffic densities and data rates.
