virtual MIMO cooperation physical layer network layer communication networks
Project description

In this research project, we will investigate advanced techniques for cooperation within and between network, link and physical layer in a virtual MIMO system. To facilitate cooperation, a global system architecture will be designed, hereby identifying the components and the information they exchange. Staring from realistic channel models and synchronization parameters, we will develop new cooperative MAC and routing protocols.
