BlueSpace addresses the challenges of increased capacity, scalability, manageability, resource allocation of 5G networks by adopting a pragmatic yet disruptive and future proof approach. The core concept of this project is exploiting the added value of Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM) in the Radio Access Network (RAN) with efficient optical beamforming interface for the pragmatic Ka-band wireless transmission band. Both being seamlessly integreable in next generation optical access networks infrastructures with massive beam steering capabilities and with flexible networkmanagement control BlueSpace proposition offers unrivalled characteristics that include:
By achieving its goal BlueSpace is a truly viable and efficient path for 5G wireless communications with a 1000-fold increase in capacity, connectivity for over 1 billion users, strict latency control, and network software programming.
