Fog RAN: A Novel Radio Access Network for Wireless Communication Networks

Grant number: DE180100501 | Funding period: 2018 - 2023



This project aims to investigate a novel network architecture that supports ultra-reliable access and coverage for future generation wireless communications. Based on recent developments in fog computing, the project aims to redefine the radio access network of wireless systems to shift from traditional, static cell-centric architecture to a more dynamic cell-free architecture. The intended outcomes of the research are an adaptive network architecture that dynamically forms serving clusters, secure communications protocols that decrease latency and increase communication security and energy-efficient signal processing techniques that support green communications.
