Abstract: Heterogeneous network (HetNet) deployment strategies have the potential to improve the energy efficiency of mobile access networks. One key aspect to consider in HetNets is the impact of the power consumption of the backhaul, i.e., the overall energy efficiency of a HetNet deployment is affected by the backhaul technology and architecture.
The Wireless@kth seed project on Operator driven mobile payment services, Mobile P3, has now been completed. The project final report is available as per the link below:
On Thursday December 12, Wireless@kth will host a visit from journalist Young Wan Lee, Deputy Editor of Science team, Business & Technology News Desk in The Chosun-Ilbo Daily Newspaper, Korea.
Mr Lee’s visit is organised by National Research Foundation of Korea and Wireless@kth is one of the items in a busy programme during Mr Lee’s stay in Kista. The focus of the visit is the Swedish research system, particularly industry-academia cooperation.

Abstract: The main focus of the ongoing research is to investigate obstacles and driving forces affecting a decision of Swedish retailers to invest in mobile payment solutions. The research is in its starting phase. And this paper presents initial results of a desktop analysis revealing the current market situation, identifying main players, and estimating the structure of investment costs. In order to do that available secondary information was analyzed.

Abstract: Swedish public transport organizations have set an objective to double usage of the public transport during the next coming five years. The conducted study attempts to investigate if the current ticket solutions support the goal of the public transport companies, and if the available mobile phone solutions can lower barriers for consumers.
Scientific Director Jens Zander gives invited talk at ETSI Future Mobile Summit Nov 21, (Cannes-Mandelieu, France) The talk was entitled “Spectrum for 5G – a big deal?”, and addressed the divided world where we have a ”coverage world” (evolution of traditional cellular) where coverage, any-time any-where is premium, and the capacity world (indoor short-range), where high data rates are provided for a dense user population at low cost. The spectrum solution has very different solutions in these two cases. Indoor there is plenty of potential spectrum above 3 GHz allowing for huge traffic capacities. In the coverage world, there will be continued demand for spectrum, mainly to make the wide-area services more affordable as traffic grows.
A little belated, but the slides from Alf Ericsson’s, Edgeware, seminar on Challenges with building high capacity Internet streaming networks are now available.
In September, Wireless@kth Assisting Center Director Mats Nilson was approached by a student – Annica Heldt – at Medborgarskolan, studying to be a qualified researcher. As part of her studies she was assigned to do an interview-based article on some contemporary topic.
