COST Action : 273

-Towards Mobile Broadband Multimedia Networks-

Start date : 17 May 2001
Duration : 4 Years
End date : 16th May 2005
No. Participating Countries : 24


The main objective of the Action is to increase knowledge of the radio aspects of mobile broadband multimedia networks, by exploring and developing new methods, models, techniques, strategies and tools to further the implementation of fourth generation mobile communication systems. It will consider frequencies ranging from the upper UHF up to millimetre waves, and data rates higher than 2 Mb/s (probably up to 155 Mb/s). As a secondary objective, it is intended that the Action continues to play a supporting role similar to the one played by the previous Actions in the mobile communications area. That is, besides giving inputs to the development of fourth generation systems it is also expected that it will contribute to the deployment of systems that are very close to completion of their standardisation phase, in particular UMTS and HIPERLAN 2. These goals agree with the more general European targets for the next 4 to 5 years in the mobile communications area, hence encompassing the 4 year schedule of the Action and giving a justification for its length
