Project Details

Description

The mmMAGIC project is led by Samsung and brings together major infrastructure vendors (Samsung, Ericsson, Alcatel-Lucent, Huawei, Intel, Nokia), major European operators (Orange, Telefonica), leading research institutes and universities (Fraunhofer HHI, CEA-LETI, IMDEA Networks, Universities Aalto, Bristol, Chalmers and Dresden), measurement equipment vendors (Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz) and one SME (Qamcom).

mmMAGIC has been a significant collaborative effort between the participants in the consortium, to deliver a portfolio of high quality technical solutions that address the unique challenges of radio access technology (RAT) design, targeting at mm-wave frequency bands (6-100 GHz). The work carried out in mmMAGIC includes the identification of use cases, scenarios, requirements, and spectrum suitability, channel measurements and modelling, and development of innovative network and air interface technical components. The mmMAGIC visualisation tool and techno-economic assessment have created concrete examples of 5G capabilities in various mm-wave scenarios, as well as their feasibility in different deployment scenarios. The mmMAGIC channel model and its open-source QuaDRiGa platform, covering the entire frequency range from 6 to 100 GHz, have been developed through intensive modelling and validation of the huge amount of data gathered from twenty-two measurement campaigns across the Europe, has significantly impacted the wide 5G community on mm-wave channel characterization and modelling. A total of 23 key architectural and physical layer (PHY) technical components and solutions, have been developed, consolidated, harmonized, and integrated into a final system concept. This has significantly contributed towards the design and evaluation a 5G multi-RAT ecosystem, with the mm-wave RAT being an integral part of it.
