Beyond 5G: 3D Network Modelling for THz-based Ultra-Fast Small Cells


5G-ACE is engineered to be a two year Standard European Fellowship (EF) that aims to strengthen the ER (Experience Researcher)’s repository of scientific and transferable skills to place him in a strong position towards professional maturity, either at the host (University of South Wales) by targeting an “Academic Position by Research”, or as an independent researcher at leading international research centres and universities in Europe. The personalized training will identify key use cases and frequency bands for THz-based mobile communications, develop new 3D network models that take into account spatial coupling by re-examining legacy engineering tools such as stochastic geometry through interdisciplinary design, and involve practical experimentation that will be implemented as scheduled secondments at Nokia Bell Labs (Belgium), and Sigint Solutions Ltd (Cyprus). To complement the scientific training, the ER’s skill set will be enriched through a tailor-made Personal Career Development Plan (PCDP) that not only includes the core transferable skills (e.g, academic teaching, IPR management, research commercialization), but will identify other relevant complementary skills to provide a well-rounded research personality ready to embark on his 5G legacy and beyond.
