Periodic Reporting for period 1 - IoRL (Internet of Radio Light)
Reporting period: 2017-06-01 to 2018-06-30
The above aspects are important for society, because the current compound mobile data growth rate is 53%, and is predicted to grow further due to new Digital Service Provider (DSP) markets. Such markets include factories, worksites, cities, logistics & transport and health, where the value creation lies in novel services and where service performance is critical. It is likely that most of this growth will be generated indoors since the majority of those markets operate in indoor environments, which the IoRL project directly targets.
Combining the results of IoRL with other 5G PPP projects, such as the 5G EVE, 5G VINNI and 5GENESIS end-to-end facilities, together they will potentially deliver end-to-end inter building and transport communications with increased throughput (greater than 30Gbps), with low latency (less than 1ms) from mmWave and VLC access points pervasively located within buildings whilst minimizing interference and harmful EM exposure and providing location accuracy of less than 10cm. This will usher the era of the Tactile Internet, which is known as the 4th Internet generation.
