Speed5G: quality of Service Provision and capacity Expansion through ExtendedDSA for 5G (Speed-5G), funded by the European Union in the Horizon 2020 Programme, 5.6 M€

    Project: Project at former HEI

    Project Details


    The objective of SPEED-5G is to research and develop technologies that address the well-known challenges of predicted growth in mobile connections and traffic volume. A major challenge is the cost of meeting the objective, in terms of both infrastructure and deployment. Today, lack of dynamic control across wireless network resources is leading to unbalanced spectrum loads and a perceived capacity bottleneck. These will be solved by SPEED-5G through eDSA (extended DSA), which is resource management with three degrees of freedom: densification, rationalized traffic allocation over heterogeneous wireless technologies, and better load balancing across available spectrum.
