Flex5Gware Meeting

13 September 2016 - 16 September 2016

The fourth face-to-face meeting of the Flex5Gware project will be hosted by CTTC this September from the 13th to the 16th.

Flex5Gware is a research project funded by the European Commission under the HORIZON 2020 Framework Programme, undertaken by 17 partners over a period of two years, starting July 1st, 2015. The overall objective of Flex5Gware is to deliver highly reconfigurable hardware (HW) platforms together with HW-agnostic software (SW) platforms targeting both network elements and devices and taking into account increased capacity, reduced energy footprint, as well as scalability and modularity, to enable a smooth transition from 4G mobile wireless systems to 5G. This approach will be necessary so that 5G HW/SW platforms can meet the requirements imposed by the anticipated exponential growth in mobile data traffic (1000 fold increase) together with the large diversity of applications (from low bit-rate/power power for M2M to interactive and high resolution applications).
