Reconfigurable OFDMA-based Cooperative NetworKs Enabled by Agile SpecTrum Use (ROCKET)
ROCKET is an Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission. The goals of ROCKET are aligned with the objective ICT-2007.1.1 "The Network of the Future". ROCKET is a consortium of 9 partners coordinated by UPC that elaborates on the experience gained in .
The project aims at providing a ubiquitous wireless solution to reach bit rates higher than 100Mbps with peak throughputs higher than 1Gbps, based on Reconfigurable OFDMA Cooperative Networks enabled by agile spectrum use (ROCKET). While increasing peak rates is a natural must-do for new standards, we believe in ROCKET that providing homogeneous high rate coverage is equally important as it guarantees a constant user experience over the whole served area and is the key enabler to a higher average spectral efficiency of the system. Those goals are inline with the IMT-Advanced requirements described in [ITU-R M1645] and match the requirements of the IEEE 802.16 Task Group m (TGm) for Advanced Air Interface. The project addresses two questions which are at the core of future IMT-advanced system design:
