Elastic Wireless Networking Experimentation


Project overview

The main goal of eWINE was to realize elastic networks that can scale to a high number of users in a short timespan through the use of an agile infrastructure (intelligent software and flexible hardware), enabling:

  • Dynamic on-demand end-to-end wireless connectivity service provisioning
  • Elastic resource sharing in dense heterogeneous and small cell networks (HetSNets)
  • Intelligent and informed configuration of the physical layer

eWINE developed and validated algorithms for advanced Cognitive Networking (context determination & sensing, optimization & negotiation techniques, and online learning algorithms) through experimentally-driven research on top of existing FIRE/FIRE+ facilities (CREW, WiSHFUL, FLEX).

Role of IS-Wireless

Within eWINE IS-Wireless contributed to benchmarking and coexistence verification between LTE and proposed 5G waveforms.
