Abstract

The use of clouds to store and process information has attracted great interest from cellular operators, access providers and researchers because of their great potential to increase information processing capacity, reduce costs through infrastructure sharing, and improve the energy efficiency of networks. This project aims to develop and integrate innovative solutions to improve the mobile Internet access of the future, the training of human resources in the telecommunications area with knowledge of wireless Internet access and the use of clouds, the dissemination of knowledge through specialized publications and the transfer of technology between universities, research institutes and the telecommunications industry. Specifically, the project proposes to study and develop new concepts, advanced algorithms and applications for Internet access through 5th generation wireless communications networks based on the use of clouds. In particular, the research activities proposed in this project include the investigation of new transmission techniques based on multiple non-orthogonal carriers, signal processing techniques for transmission and reception of cloud-connected access points, medium access protocols, new resource allocation approaches, compression algorithms, and physical layer security techniques. In addition, the project also provides for the integration of advanced techniques proposed and the construction of a software-based radio prototype to verify its operation and applications. (AU)
