The goal of the project is to determine a suitable air interface design for the uplink of next generation mobile communication systems taking into account requirements and constraints from system and hardware point of view. Often initial design choices are made from very ideal assumptions, which are then later adjusted for actual physical hardware implementation. Having the hardware implementation part in mind from the very beginning offers the possibility of making a more reliable and factual design choice. The choice of modulation, air interface multiplexing, and air interface adaptation has a profound influence on the radio frequency hardware used in mobile devices - and vice versa as exemplified by constraints from battery power, signal dynamic range, component power dissipation etc. The project is funded by CTIF.
