Integrated Radio Access Point Typentwicklung, Optimierung, Realisierung (iRaptor), funded by BMWi (2018 - Present)
The iRaptor project is part of the larger BIC-IRAP project investigating the implementation of local networks for indoor business coverage based on LTE, 5G, and Wi-Fi. The first challenge is to define a proper deployable architecture. The projects contributors - BSISDN, ng4T, Hotzone, Travelping, brown-iposs, RWTH Aaachen, University of Applied Science Osnabrück, Technical University Chemnitz - are looking for efficient steering and controlling of the IRAP-networks with a particular view on the ability to operate such networks. BIC-IRAP is facing the challenges of:
- Integration of Wi-Fi, LTE, and 5G beyond Hotspot 2.0
- Multi-operator ability, transparent for customers
- Multi-band usage, efficient utilisation of all radio spectra
- Small Cells as a Service for medium-size indoor locations ISEK
