The Playground of Wireless Dense Networks of the Future

This poster presents the key ideas behind the ICT CROWD (Connectivity management for eneRgy Optimised Wireless Dense networks) project, funded by the European Commission. The project moves from the observation that wireless traffic demand is currently growing exponentially. This growing demand can only be satisfied by increasing the density of points of access and combining different wire- less technologies. Mobile network operators have already started to push for denser, heterogeneous deployments; however, current technology needs to steer towards effi- ciency, to avoid unsustainable energy consumption and network performance implo- sion due to interference. In this context, CROWD pursues four key goals: (i) bringing density-proportional capacity where it is needed, (ii) optimising MAC mechanisms operating in very dense deployments by explicitly accounting for density as a resource rather than as an impediment, (iii) enabling traffic-proportional energy consumption, and (iv) guaranteeing mobile user’s quality of experience by designing smarter con- nectivity management solutions.
