SANSA project has been presented in a poster session at the European Conference on Networks and Communications (EUCNC2015) which took place on 29 June - 2 July 2015 in Paris, France.
EUCNC is a big showcase for the research projects funded by the European Commission in the domain of communication networks. Under the conference lemma “5G, shaping the vision”, the most relevant aspects of future 5G networks such as requirements, scenarios and use cases or technology candidates have been deeply discussed.
Among them, presentations, projects and demonstrations have addressed millimetre-wave technology as a solution for the backhaul network in the small cells context. However, one remarkably conclusion from one of the keynote sessions has been that centimetre–waves, 6GHz to 30GHz, cannot be forgotten as a good complexity-cost–performance trade-off solution for the first stages of 5G.
Therefore, it turns out that SANSA concept is very well aligned with the 5G vision and that the choice of Ka band indeed strengthen the impact of the project.
