Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: EXperimentation and simulation based PLatform for beyond 5G Optical-wireless network Research and development

Acronym: EXPLOR
Main Objective:
Fifth- and sixth-generation communication systems are expected to undergo significant advances. Optical wireless technologies are a promising candidate for meeting the demands of these communication systems. With this in mind, the EU-funded EXPLOR project aims to develop a comprehensive modular software with fully validated state-of-the-art component and system-level numerical models and cognitive and adaptive features. The software will include libraries with novel use cases and scenarios targeting next-generation converged optical wireless networks. The project platform will promote deep academic and techno-economic considerations of relevant beyond-5G features such as high-millimetre-wave frequency optical front-haul, femtocell-based communications, network cognition and cloud-radio-access-network environment functionalities. This will provide insight into the field and enable future innovation beyond 5G networks.
