Ultra Capacity Wireless Layer beyond 100 GHz based on Millimeter-wave Travelling Wave Tubes

Project type: European
Period: 01-09-2017 / 30-08-2020
Reference: H2020-ICT-09-RIA
Coordinator: University of Lancaster

Project description:
ULTRAWAVE project is aimed at developing a high capacity backhaul that enables 5G cell densification by exploiting bands beyond 100 GHz. ULTRAWAVE system is empowered by the convergence of new developements in three main technologies: vacuum electronics, MMIC chipsets and photonics systems. Together they will allow the creation of an ultra capacity layer providing more than 100 Gbps per kilometer square in Point to Multi point at D-band (141 – 174.8 GHz) fed by novel G-band (300 GHz) Point to Point high capacity links. This ULTRAWAVE layer will enable backhaul of hundreds of small and pico cells, no matter the density, opening scenarios for new network paradigms aiming at a full 5G implementation.
