Brief description This project aims to fundamentally characterise the practical information carrying capacity of future mm-wave wireless communication networks. The mm-wave spectrum offers 10-100 times the bandwidth used by current mobile networks, but comes with many challenges. An information theoretic model will be developed incorporating state of the art mm-wave channel models, and practical engineering implementation constraints. The expected outcome will be new network designs and data transmission technologies that unlock the spectrum by enabling secure outdoor mobile cellular deployments with wide-spread coverage. This will support vastly greater traffic densities and data rates.
