A new initiative named Beyond Next-Generation Mobile Broadband (BuNGee) aimed at a tenfold increase of mobile broadband infrastructure capacity density has been launched.
The €4.7 million initiative is funded in large part by the European Commission and will draw upon collaboration among the consortium members comprising European service providers, technology equipment vendors, universities, and research organizations. Organized under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7), the BuNGee consortium's primary objective will be to increase the overall mobile network infrastructure capacity density to well beyond what current technologies are promising, targeting the challenging goal of 1 Giga bit per second per square kilometer. The project will identify new network deployment strategies, especially suited for dense urban environments where market demand for wireless broadband access is highest.
The BuNGee project is planned to continue through June 2012.
