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: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...

Im Focus: Probing nobelium with laser light

Sizes and shapes of nuclei with more than 100 protons were so far experimentally inaccessible. Laser spectroscopy is an established technique in measuring fundamental properties of exotic atoms and their nuclei. For the first time, this technique was now extended to precisely measure the optical excitation of atomic levels in the atomic shell of three isotopes of the heavy element nobelium, which contain 102 protons in their nuclei and do not occur naturally. This was reported by an international team lead by scientists from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung.

Nuclei of heavy elements can be produced at minute quantities of a few atoms per second in fusion reactions using powerful particle accelerators. The obtained...

Im Focus: Asymmetric plasmonic antennas deliver femtosecond pulses for fast optoelectronics

A team headed by the TUM physicists Alexander Holleitner and Reinhard Kienberger has succeeded for the first time in generating ultrashort electric pulses on a chip using metal antennas only a few nanometers in size, then running the signals a few millimeters above the surface and reading them in again a controlled manner. The technology enables the development of new, powerful terahertz components.

Classical electronics allows frequencies up to around 100 gigahertz. Optoelectronics uses electromagnetic phenomena starting at 10 terahertz. This range in...
