Research focus and goals

We study and develop optimized physical (PHY) layer, medium access control (MAC) layer and networking layer methods and protocols for different radio access networks, with a specific emphasis on 5G and beyond mobile communications. Radio network planning and optimization is also one essential expertise area. All these aim to meet the increasing requirements in terms of peak data-rates, latency, capacity and number of supported devices, while taking also the sustainable energy consumption into account in a modern society.
