An Approach to 4th Generation Wireless Infrastructures - Scenarios and key research issues
Paper i proceeding, 1999
Whereas the development of telecommunication equipment and services moves at a fast pace, infrastructure deployment, in contrast, is a slow and costly process, demanding a long-range strategic perspective in decision making. As a consequence, R&D efforts in this area are concerned with problems on a time horizon of 10 years or more. Studying the feasibility and viability of various future infrastructure architectures and potential road-maps of their deployment is the focus of the 4th Generation Wireless Infrastructures (4GW) project within the strategic Personal Computing & Communication (PCC) program (1).
