CONGRESO Scenarios and Use Cases in Tweether: W-band for Internet Everywhere

Abstract

Millimeter waves offer a promising solution to the data congestion that is fast overwhelming the actual network capacity. While the V- band (57-64GHz) and E-band (71-76GHz and 81-86 GHz) are widely targeted for Point to Point high data rate, the W-band (92-95GHz) is still unexploited and lightly regulated. In particular, Point to Multi-Point (PtMP) wireless backhaul architecture could benefit from 3 GHz frequency bandwidth at the W-band to achieve a capacity density up to 10 Gbps/km². The HORIZON 2020 TWEETHER project aims to solve the technological gap that presently prevents the use of W-band to distribute substantial capacity from a central point over a wide coverage surface. Moreover, each of the links of the PtMP TWEETHER system is conceived to provide a high level of flexibility in order to easily adapt to a large panel of deployment scenarios.
