—In this paper we present our approach regarding the implementation of new wireless radio receiver exploiting filterbank techniques, using a software-development driven approach. Since most of the common radio communications systems share a similar structure, this can be exploited creating a framework which provides a generic layout and tools to construct a(More)
Dense small cell (SC) deployments are expected to help handling the explosive growth of mobile data usage. However, the backhaul of these deployments will face several challenges where point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PMP) wireless technologies will be combined forming multipoint-to-multipoint (MP2MP) wireless mesh backhauls. In this context,(More)
The backhaul of upcoming dense 5G Small Cell (SC) networks needs a full redesign, but there is no clear consensus on how to deploy such infrastructure. A low-cost backhaul solution is that provided by a wireless mesh network. Additionally, Software Defined Networking (SDN) is being considered as an alternative to distributed approaches to lower network(More)
The deployment of dense networks of Small Cells (SC) is one of the key components of 5G mobile networks and will pose several challenges to the backhaul network. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is a key technique to cope with the increased management complexity of such heterogeneous deployments, helping in the task of achieving a system-wide network(More)
After a disaster, it is unlikely to expect current terrestrial infrastructures to provide the coverage and the Quality of Service required by emergency operators. Currently, PPDR operators go towards a portable LTE infrastructure that provides an access network to field operators, backhauled by a wireless mesh network that can route traffic from and towards(More)
