The FP7 Rocket Project: Wireless Access Technology for Homogeneous High Rate Coverage

Download now Free registration required

Executive Summary

The FP7 ROCKET project aims at designing Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) technology that enables a larger number of users to be served at a high data rate in both urban and rural deployment scenarios. The technical approach relies on the combination of advanced coordination and cooperation of Base Stations (BS) and Relay Stations (RS) in order to increase the area spectral efficiency, operation on larger bandwidth, including an opportunistic/flexible spectrum usage that adapts to the different capabilities of the network devices (BS,RS,MS) and optimized signaling that minimizes the MAC overhead for basic functionalities such as scheduling and handover and the backhaul load required to support the advanced spectrum usage, mobility (i.e. handover) and cooperation mechanisms defined in the project.
