The overall objective of Flex5Gware is to deliver highly reconfigurable hardware (HW) platforms together with HW-agnostic software (SW) platforms targeting both network elements and devices and taking into account increased capacity, reduced energy footprint, as well as scalability and modularity, to enable a smooth transition from 4G mobile wireless systems to 5G. This approach will be necessary so that 5G HW/SW platforms can meet the requirements imposed by the anticipated exponential growth in mobile data traffic (1000 fold increase) together with the large diversity of applications (from low bit-rate/power power for M2M to interactive and high resolution applications).

5TONIC Involvement

One of the Proof of Concepts of the Flex5Gware project (PoC #8: Reconfigurable radio platform and SW programming performed and injected by the network) has been partly developed and integrated in the 5TONIC premises (including attendance from other partners), prior to its exhibition in the project’s final event.
