SOLDER stands for Spectrum OverLay through aggregation of heterogeneous DispERsed Bands. It is EU 7th Framework Program project with a budget of 3 275 296 EUR and a consortium consisting of the following partners: IS-Wireless, Thales, Sequans, ISI, Kings College London, Eurocom.
The goal of SOLDER is to develop a new spectrum overlay technology, which will provide the efficient aggregation of non-continuous dispersed spectrum bands licensed to heterogeneous networks (HetNets) and heterogeneous Radio Access Technology (h-RATs).
Within 5GNOW SOLDER IS-Wireless is responsible for radio resource management, scheduler implementation and MAC layer design implementation and system-level simulations.
