End-to-end Reconfigurability E¿R

Objective

The End-to-End Reconfigurability (E2R) project aims at bringing full benefits of the valuable diversity within the Radio Eco-Space, composed of wide range of systems such as Cellular, Wireless Local Area and Broadcast. The key objective of the E2R project is to devise, develop and trial architectural design of reconfigurable devices and supporting system functions to offer an expanded set of operational choices to the users, applications and service providers, operators, regulators in the context of heterogeneous mobile radio systems.

Innovative Research, development and proof of concept will be sought in end-to-end aspect, stretching from user device all the way up to Internet protocol, and services, and in reconfigurability support, intrinsic functionalities such as management and control, download support, spectrum, regulatory framework and business models. End-to-End reconfigurability systems will provide common platforms and associated execution environment for multiple air interfaces, protocols and applications, which would yield to scalable and reconfigurable infrastructure that optimise resource usage, increased network and equipment capability and versatility by software modifications.

The users will be benefiting from these capabilities by reaching required service at times and places when and where needed at affordable cost. Furthermore, E2R proposes also to serve niche markets and provide users with special peculiar services via customised solutions that are open, flexible and programmable at all layers. E2R will thus contribute to the realisation of the Ambient Space through which a modern society interacts and communicates with key capabilities of the Radio Eco-System and finally actively influence European industrial and economic competitiveness. Standardisation, Dissemination and Knowledge sharing under training instruments will be intensely used to consolidate this influence.
