Project completion of 5G-CHARISMA: Successful Development of new Network Architectures for the 5G

11.07.2018

With a final presentation at Telekom Slovenije in Ljubljana, the EU-funded 5G CHARISMA project was successfully completed in spring 2018. Fraunhofer HHI was involved in the two and a half year research project with its department Photonic Networks and Systems.

The aim of the project was to develop a hierarchical and para-virtualized 5G access network architecture, which allows the shortest connection between end users with end-to-end encryption. Important components developed in the project are the cloud platform, the intelligent network nodes and the high-rate transmission systems.


This laid the foundation for the 5G PPP targets, an increase in area capacity by a factor of 1000 at a data rate increased by 10-100 times.

The main contribution of Fraunhofer HHI was the development of a 100G OFDM-PON prototype for the deployment in the 5G access network, which was tested by the network operator Telekom Slovenije as part of the project.

Furthermore, an Ethernet-based synchronization solution for fronthaul connections of the future mobile communication standard 5G was developed within the framework of the project.

"In the CHARISMA project, we were able to test the concept and DSP algorithms for a 100G OFDM-PON in an operator's laboratory for the first time," comments Kai Habel, project coordinator at Fraunhofer HHI, on the completion of the project.

The project had a total budget of approx. 5.9 million euros. Project partners were research institutions such as i2CAT from Barcelona, the University of Essex, the National Centre for Scientific Research "Demokritos" in Athens, as well as SMEs apfutura, InnoRoute, incites, JCP-Connect and the telecommunications companies COSMOTE, INTRACOM TELECOM, Telekom Slovenije, Altice Labs, Ethernity and Ericsson.

The success of the project is confirmed by the large number of scientific publications as well as by the various system demonstrations at various events such as MWC, ECOC or EUCNC.

Im Focus: Scientists present new observations to understand the phase transition in quantum chromodynamics

The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma.

This is a joint press release of University Muenster and Heidelberg as well as the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt.

Then, in a phase transition, they combined and formed hadrons, among them the building blocks of atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons. In the current issue of...

Im Focus: Patented nanostructure for solar cells: Rough optics, smooth surface

Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team led by Prof. Christiane Becker from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.

"It is not enough simply to bring more light into the cell," says Christiane Becker. Such surface structures can even ultimately reduce the efficiency by...

Im Focus: New soft coral species discovered in Panama

A study in the journal Bulletin of Marine Science describes a new, blood-red species of octocoral found in Panama. The species in the genus Thesea was discovered in the threatened low-light reef environment on Hannibal Bank, 60 kilometers off mainland Pacific Panama, by researchers at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama (STRI) and the Centro de Investigación en Ciencias del Mar y Limnología (CIMAR) at the University of Costa Rica.

Scientists established the new species, Thesea dalioi, by comparing its physical traits, such as branch thickness and the bright red colony color, with the...
