Creating and sharing knowledge for telecommunications

Project: Distributed Access Design for Cell-less Smart 6G Networks

Acronym: CELL-LESS6G
Main Objective:
The CELL-LESS6G project investigates multiple solutions to be integrated into the upcoming generation of wireless networks (6G). The innovative aspects include the adoption of advanced communication technologies to address ultra-dense deployment scenarios capable of serving data-centric applications requiring stringent throughput, very low latency, and a huge density of connected devices. To this end, the project explores the innovative concept of cell-less networks, which breaks the conventional paradigm of associating a device with a single base station. On the contrary, CELL-LESS6G explores dissociated operation to support a user-centric paradigm where the devices can be served by several base stations simultaneously.
The solutions to be investigated in the project require a deep knowledge of wireless communication systems and computer networks, which are topics under the Telecommunications area, and more broadly in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
