5G PPP blueSPACE project: Building on the Use of Spatial Multiplexing 5G Networks Infrastructures and Showcasing Advanced Technologies and Networking Capabilities
Presention of the concept of the European 5G PPP project BLUESPACE, by the coordinator of the blueSPACE project Idelfonso Tafur Monroy, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and Photonic Integration Technology Center (PITC)
This is a presention of the concept of the European 5G PPP project BLUESPACE whose core 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 integreable in next generation optical access networks infrastructures with massive beam steering capabilities and with flexible network management control. We discuss as well the role of photonics in BLUESPACE and related 5G PPP projects fort the realization of 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.
