WP4: Access network optimization

The goals of this workpackage are:

  • Design and dimension the access network elements according to the requirements defined in WP2, based on UMTS/HSPA and LTE specifications.

  • Propose distributed non-supervised methods for network monitoring and optimization under energy consumption and service constraints.

  • Define procedures allowing effective control of multiple flows when the access network is connected to a variable quality transport network.

  • Evaluate different possibilities for transport network offloading.

This workpackage is led by Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
