5G-PHOS demonstrates a 100 Gb/s WDM-enabled 5G network targeting Hot-Spot areas that contain thousands of users in very confined areas, such as football stadiums, airports, concert halls etc. 5G-PHOS’ hotspot infrastructure will offer multi-Gbps mm-wave access through massive MIMO antennas surrounding the hotspot area.
A prototype system will be validated at Ericsson’s Fronthaul Testbed prior to evaluating the complete network scenario in the joint AUTH/COSMOTE test-bed, concluding with a field-trial demonstrator at the PAOK F.C. stadium.
In terms of ITU 5G functionalities, 5G-PHOS investigates:
