Car 2 X Communications

Car-to-car communication is a growing field of research that holds out the promise of major new applications – such as cooperative exchange of information for the avoidance of accidents. All such applications depend on reliable and robust radio communication between vehicles. And the reliability of the wireless connection directly depends on the type and quality of the radio channel. A better understanding and realistic simulation of the dynamics of the wireless channel open the way to the adaptive design and the low-cost but accurate evaluation of future communication systems.

5G will realise a true Internet of Things, a network capable of supporting potentially trillions of wireless connected devices and with overall bandwidth one thousand times higher that today's wireless networks. Current 4G technology is approaching the limits of what is possible with this generation of radio technology and to address this, one of the key requirements of 5G will be to create a network that is highly optimised to make maximum use of available radio spectrum and bandwidth for QoS, and because of the network size and number of devices connected, it will be necessary for it to largely manage itself and deal with organisation, configuration, security, and optimisation issues.

Cognitive Management Systems

The 5G environment is foreseen to become even more complex, beyond human administration capabilities, due to the integration of a new 5G access network, a high diversification of the radio-access within the same technology, convergence with other wireless access technologies and backhaul, massive parallelization, separate administration on top of a single shared physical infrastructure and the localization and distribution of applications. To make this manageable, a new understanding of the management plane and its automation, the redefinition of KPIs based on novel algorithms for prediction and learning, adaptation to human situational context and easy administration are required.

Robustness and Security

One of the main requirements for trusting a new technology is to provide insurance against external or fortuitous exception cases resulting from attacks, failures, misconfigurations or defects. These become even more important when the same infrastructure is used for critical network infrastructures, factories and industrial communication, eHealth, transportation, etc. or when the environment is shared between multiple tenants having different administrators. Every flexibility feature, such as self-scaling, brings a new set of requirements in terms of robustness of the overall system.

Supporting radio advancements

Apart and in tandem with the development of a new physical radio, the 5G environment requires management and subscriber oriented control planes to be developed. Using an own developed LTE/5G radio signaling protocol stack, new concepts are considered in the area of architecture design for heterogeneous radio concepts, small cell integration, dynamic spectrum allocation, radio network management, self-backhauling, etc.
