Fibre-based Small Cell Backhauling for Next Generation Wireless Networks

Grant number: DP150101977 | Funding period: 2015 - 2018



With an unprecedented 11-fold growth in mobile data services expected over the next five years, wireless networks are facing a fundamental challenge in supporting this enormous traffic. In meeting this challenge, next generation wireless networks need to offer services over smaller cells with a significantly larger number of base-stations, thus allowing high capacity connection to the global internet (backhaul). The aim of this project is to formulate optimisation methodologies for a sustainable energy-efficient small cell backhaul infrastructure. Through integration with the optical fibre infrastructure, the research will address network planning, design, and optimisation in terms of perfor..
