Efficient Massive-MIMO System

The project aims to develop an open source 5G solution for the Massive MIMO, including the development of a hardware and software platform, based on the principle of OAI’s success with 4G (www.openairinterface.org).

The main hardware deliverables for the project are the integration of 5G compatible baseband and radio subsystems into an OAI-based 5G terminal and gNodeB demonstrator, and the antenna array for end-to-end MIMO link experimentation.

The main software deliverables of the project are:
i) digital Massive MIMO Signal Processing algorithms for 5G, implemented on the chosen hardware target and ii) a 5G NR protocol stack for terminals (UE) and base station (eNodeB) to perform experiments in a realistic environment in real time
