Energy-Efficient Wireless Access
Multiple sources (Focus area spearhead projects)
University of Oulu
Project leader: Professor Markku Juntti
The project is carried out in CWC–RT. Digitalization requires pervasive wireless connectivity. To emphasize sustainability, the rapidly increasing data traffic requires the energy efficiency of wireless communications and network operation to improve by about an order of magnitude. The core objective of the project is to develop novel scientific knowledge and engineering solutions to enable energy-efficient physical and link layers with related transceiver and resource allocation technologies for the 6G radio access networks technology. The scope of the project focuses on system level optimization with large antenna arrays applied in below 10 GHz massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) and cell-free system design as well as mmWave bands, which are given a special focus. The research methods include theoretical mathematical modeling of transceivers, cellular network, analysis and optimization, computer simulations on device, link and system level as well as practical experimentation.
