Project description

In this project, both power consumption and human exposure are accounted for during the design phase of 5G wireless access networks. By taking into account (renewable) energy predictions, actions can be undertaken in advance to save energy for future shortages. Different energy-saving techniques will be investigated, next to the influence of 5G related techniques such as e.g., massive MIMO.
