Demonstration of SPEED-5G results at 5G Huddle 2016 event in London
At the 5G Huddle 2016 event in London, which took place on 26-27 April 2016, SPEED-5G project partner WINGS ICT Solutions presented some of the latest project results. It included a live demonstration of SPEED-5G’s RRM/MAC solutions and their benefits. Specifically, the demonstration included a performance evaluation for allocating the best possible channel of all the available channels to users. This dynamic Channel selection was performed based on the minimal interference of each channel and some preliminary results were also presented.
The figure above illustrates the simulation tool running the specific RRM/MAC algorithm that was presented in the workshop/demonstration session of the conference by Ioannis-Prodromos Belikaidis and Andreas Georgakopoulos.
In addition, Andreas Georgakopoulos, participated in the panel which discussed the demonstrated outcomes of SPEED-5G and other demonstrators.
During the two-day conference, the participants discussed the work that needs to be done in order to make the 5G vision a reality. The conference offered a platform to assess the outcomes of the recent World Radio Communication meeting (WRC-15) in November 2015, and the spectrum that is needed to fuel 5G. Participants also sought to identify the unique challenges that lay ahead as we move towards wide-scale rollout by 2020.
