WP5: Efficient and Reconfigurable MAC

The goals of this workpackage are:

To design and specify an ultra-efficient MAC protocol reflecting the demands resulting from very high PHY data rates of IMT-advanced systems.
To enhance the air interface (MAC and PHY layer) enabling reconfiguration necessary to adapt the protocols to the changing environment.
To identify key parameters and to develop guidelines that maximize the overall system performance through the use of reconfiguration.
To explore a scenario where advanced handover techniques ensure high data throughput.
To evaluate the resulting system performance of the developed ultra-efficient reconfigurable wireless system by means of simulations.

This workpackage is led by RWTH Aachen University.
