SPOT5G aims at contributing to the design of an innovative communications architecture which can break the performance limitations of the currently loosely inter-connected, resource-fragmented and isolated operation of the mobile network ecosystem. The objective is to jointly and efficiently handle evolved mobile broad band (eMBB), massive Machine-Type Communications (MTC) for the Internet of Things (IoT) and Ultra Reliable and Low Latency Communications (URLLC). This will be done by transforming the existing multi-layered set of attachment points to a flat coalition of massively distributed radio transceivers utilizing a common pool of energy, radio, computing and storage resources that are optimally handled by a network coordinator in the cloud.
