Project: Comparison of WiMAX and LTE on a Personal Cell Scenario for the Provision of Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Services

Acronym: COILS
Main Objective:
The main goal of COILS is the design and evaluation of efficient methods for the provision of broadband services and applications based on MBMS to groups of mobile users located mainly in Personal Cells. The use of MBMS over Personal Cells will support the efficient use of radio and network resources, while also providing rich context information to applications and services. Merging these two frameworks promises enhanced multimedia application provisioning, benefiting end users and operators alike. The technologies investigated during the course of the project will generate considerable novel intellectual property that will become the property of IT.
