Defining the backbone of future mobile internet access

21.07.2017

IHP coordinates large EU-Project on the development of the 5th Generation of Mobile Networks (5G). The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.

The world becomes more mobile and the requirements for transmitting pictures, videos, music and cloud data are increasing.


5G-PICTURE proposes to integrate network and compute/storage resources in a common infrastructure

To cope with the growing mobile data traffic, the fifth generation of mobile networks, termed 5G, is being defined and developed. IHP - Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics in Frankfurt (Oder) is coordinating an EU funded project in this field.

“Within 5G-PICTURE, the aim is to develop an integrated transport network involving optical and wireless communications, to allow a dynamic adaptation to changing requirements. Together with distributed compute and storage resources, this will be the backbone for our future mobile internet access”, explains Prof. Eckhard Grass, coordinator and Team Leader at IHP.

The project consortium, consisting of nineteen European partners, has a vision of an integrated, scalable and open 5G infrastructure aiming to support operational and end-user services for both information and communications technologies (ICT) and ‘vertical’ industries.

“This infrastructure will rely on a converged fronthaul and backhaul solution, integrating advanced wireless access and novel optical network domains”, adds Dr. Jesús Gutiérrez Terán, who is Project Leader at IHP’s department “System Design”.

5G is considered to significantly enhance former mobile radio platforms. It will allow a speed of several Gigabit per second - at least ten times faster than current 4G technology. The EU is funding “5G-PICTURE” with about eight million Euro as part of the Horizon 2020 program. The work at IHP will be funded with about 600.000 Euro.

“The joint work of experts from many different countries across Europe in a project like 5G-PICTURE not only accelerates the development of the 5G technology but also supports mutually beneficial cooperation in science, technology and industries within the European Union at a larger scale”, points out Prof. Eckhard Grass.

The project kick-off meeting takes place on 24.-26.07.2017 at IHP in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
