Self Configurable Air Interface

Project: Research

Project Details


SURFACE aims at studying and evaluating the performance of a novel generalised air interface capable of self-reconfiguring in order to satisfy global network QoS (Quality of Service) requirements, based on channel and traffic knowledge. The project considers Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technologies as an option and develops a general framework that includes as specific cases standardised access technologies like DS-CDMA, MC-CDMA and OFDM to develop a physical layer, completely reconfigurable to match the global instantaneous, but imperfect, channel state, mobility, traffic information and terminal capabilities.
