NKTH – A*STAR (Singapore) Joint research project

Project duration:
01.01. 2011 - 31.12.2014

Project Objectives:

The aim of this project is to assess some specific problems of this two-tier architecture, develop, and implement algorithms for solving these as well as to deeply investigate the performance of the developed algorithms and the network as a whole. The main tasks of the project are aligned according to the dedicated objectives, which are:


  1. Development of advanced radio architecture for high-rate cellular communication systems with two-tier cellular structure.
  2. Design and implementation of efficient and adaptive radio resource management protocol that exploits different dimensions of wireless channels to achieve optimal diversity gain.
  3. Strategy formulation for cognitive radio access in femto-cell network using game theoretical approach.
  4. Development of intelligent handover planning, decision and execution algorithms.
  5. Analysis and simulation of the capacity and performance of the novel two-tier system.
