The outcomes of the eWINE include innovative intelligent solutions that span all layers of the protocol stack, but also novel methods and approaches for using FIRE facilities for the design of intelligent HetSNets algorithms. These solutions are implemented in the form of three showcases, each targeting a specific HetSNets challenge.
Elastic on-demand and end-to-end wireless connectivity service provisioning
Showcase 1 focuses on elastic on-demand and end-to-end wireless connectivity service provisioning. It demonstrates the use of virtualized networks, in which the network architecture is dynamically arranged, while the end user is moving, by negotiating with the most suitable base stations along the mobile end user’s path, to provide connectivity and delivering the service while the end user is within a reachable coverage range.
Elastic resource sharing in dense heterogeneous and small cells
Showcase 2 focuses on elastic resource sharing in dense heterogeneous and small cells. It shows that run-time intelligent planning and scheduling with context knowledge can significantly optimize the sharing of resources (frequency, time, …) and hence improve the connectivity and meet the application requirements.
Open and reconfigurable physical layer for context-based service provisioning
Showcase 3 focuses on open and reconfigurable physical layer for context-based service provisioning. It demos the use of intelligence at the physical layer to meet applications requirements in a dense deployment scenario, addressed by switching between different waveform parameters and frequencies, coexisting with legacy systems, like LTE; implementation in several signal processing platforms.
