Deliverable D3.2: Common Analog and Digital Baseband Design for Flexible Radio and Optical Transceiver

Abtract:This deliverable focuses especially on radio and optical transmissions. The main issue of this document is to try to find a common architecture between the radio and optical transmitter in order to mutualize as much as possible the implementation.

Starting from the analysis of the propagation channel characteristics of both systems, we argue about the choice of the modulation format when also taking into account some material constraints issued from the hardware components. Then, Tx and Rx description and limitations of analog radio and optical parts are pointed out before describing the main elements composing the radio and optical baseband system physical layer. In conclusion, we propose three main possibilities for mutualizing the radio and optical transmitter platforms.

Deliverable D2.1a: Situation of THz spectrum in Europe

Abtract: In this deliverable, an overview of radio / optical spectrum above 90GHz in Europe is presented. Regulation situation and high level propagation characteristics in these bands (mainly for the radio case) are analysed in order to select spectrum of interest for WORTECS system studies and proof of concepts.

Deliverable D2.2: Use cases and Requirements

Abtract: In this deliverable, WORTECS use cases and related key performances indicators / requirements are presented. Three main “Tbit/s” scenarios have been defined in order to drive theoretical studies and implementation of proofs of concepts: Virtual Reality, Enterprise communications / Virtual office and Stadium / Open-Air Festival / Themes Parks.

Deliverable D2.3: Focus on Virtual Reality

Abtract: In this deliverable, we study the current state of the Virtual Reality industry and analyse the potential evolution of the technology. We then explain why WORTECS objectives of high bandwidth and low latency wireless transmission are necessary and invaluable for developing the full potential of multiuser high quality Virtual Reality.
