Customers are demanding increasingly fast and responsive wireless coverage, and technologies are advancing rapidly to deliver. An important challenge is enabling this kind of service in very dense user situations such as stadiums or tourist hotspots. The EU-funded BI-SDMoF project is adapting technologies previously developed by its scientists for ultra-high capacity wireless networks of the future to be implemented on systems much closer to market. These include a 5G centralised or cloud radio access network architecture, one of the most prominent options for 5G rollout. The capabilities will be demonstrated in a real stadium.
