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.

SANSA kick-off meeting was held in Castelldefels (Barcelona) at the CTTC premises on 10/02/2015. It was the first face-to-face meeting of the SANSA consortium so it allowed the partners to establish good relationships among them. During the morning, a general introduction to the SANSA project was given by the project Coordinator. Next, all partners were informed about the administrative and management procedures that will be followed during SANSA execution. The afternoon was used to start fruitful discussions about the technical work to be carried out in each work package. SANSA kick-off meeting was the first step for a successful execution of SANSA project.
SANSA project public website has been launched on 27/02/2015. The objective of this site is to provide detailed information about the project objectives, activities and results. In particular, this site presents the specific objectives of the project, an introducction to the overall solution proposed in orther to achieve them, a description of the partners who are going to carry out the research activities, and the specific organization of those activities within the project framework. In addition, this site will also make available all public project deliverables, as well as any conference or journal paper published under the SANSA umbrella. Finally, the SANSA website will also inform about the events organized by the SANSA consortium.
