EU-Taiwan Targeted Opening Call, ICT-08-2017, Cooperation in Access Convergence is expected to open in May and close in November 2016. Focusing on integration of air interface technologies and network architecture with demonstration of innovative applications, Taiwan is looking for partners on the topics of Highly Coordinated Ultra Dense Networks, Machine to Machine (M2M), 5G edge network. A networking session on the Opening Day (16:50~17:35) of ICT2015 in Lisbon and an EU-Taiwan Joint Workshop on the 21st of October elaborating on the targeted call will also be held. Meanwhile, a live demo of Device to Device (D2D) applications with augmented reality services are showcased at Taiwan Stand at ICT2015 in Lisbon. Visitors can interact with smart Digital Signage for content sharing, e-coupons, and easily retrieve dynamically updated info on the server to make smart choices.
A Highly Coordinated Ultra Dense Network (HCUDN) considers tight inter-cell coordination and exploits multiple antennas techniques for network multi-input multi-output (MIMO), dynamic Time-Division Duplexing (TDD), interference management, and mobility enhancement that allows multiple concurrent transmissions at the same time on the same frequency. With an on-campus 4G and Software Defined Networks (SDN) experimental network and environment, Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI)’s HCUDN can effectively & quickly respond to channel and load variations and are robust for multi-node transmission schemes.
Institute for Information Industry (III ) will exhibit B4G/5G research topics and current results, including the General Purpose Processor (GPP) based LTE eNB platform, Geo-location data base for dynamic spectrum sharing and flexible frequency duplex technologies. In addition, III joined the European OneLab project and has deployed a test bed in Taiwan that becomes part of the global OneLab network, paving the way for its accelerated 5G system technology development effort.
III is also researching into efficient air interface technologies and network architectures that can contribute to addressing the above 5G system requirements. The III delegates of ICT 2015 look forward to meeting researchers and developers from EU communities and around the world, exchanging ideas and forming collaborative partnerships to develop key 5G technologies for 2020 and beyond.
In order to meet the 5G on ultra-reliable, low latency and ultra-scalable requirements, a new approach is developed to introduce utilize the context-aware offloading control, and to place network intelligence and control at the Mobile Edge which is closer to users.
ITRI’s Device-to-Device (D2D) Smart Relay Gateway and Router Backhaul Capability for multiple localized services implements mobile edge computing & local cloud computing solutions to significantly reduce delay, ensure reliability, and improve bandwidth utilization & connectivity range. These technologies help mobile operators to build flexible small-cell routes for complex urban landscapes using Line-of-Sight and Non Line-of-Sight radio links positioned at street lamps, roof tops, indoor spaces and basements, where it is difficult to deploy wired backhaul.
