5Gwireless is a multi-partner European Training Network (ETN) project, within the framework of the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITNs).

5Gwireless was launched in January 2015, is focused on studying and designing Innovative Architectures, Wireless Technologies and Tools for High Capacity and Sustainable 5G Ultra-Dense Cellular Networks.


5Gwireless is a fully-integrated and multi-disciplinary network of 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) working in 10 research institutions distributed in 6 European countries. The consortium is formed by 4 Universities, 1 Research Center and 5 Private Companies.

5Gwireless offers a cross-sectoral environment to 15 ESRs, in order to shape their long-term research view and to allow them to get fundamental methodological tools on various research fields and novel concepts, such as, cell-less/device-centric architectures, ultra-dense networks and mmW communications.

Latest News

  • 1 - 3 February 2017: Zahid had the chance to do his Public Talk during the IRACON meeting, in the mark of a COST action, which is described as follows: "This COST Action aims at scientific breakthroughs by introducing novel design and analysis methods for the 5th-generation (5G) and beyond-5G radio communication networks." It took place in Lisbon, Portugal, and Zahid presented the Blockage Modelling for Evaluation of a 60 GHz Dense Small-Cell Network Performance, with an attendance of around 150 persons.

  • April 2017: The 2nd 5Gwireless training event will take place at CNRS, providing the students with the opportunity of learning more about writing scientific papers and patents, and presentation techniques. These complementary courses will last 4 days, from the 3th of April to the 6th, and will be attended jointly by another project ESRs: the students from 5GAuRA. More details are given here.

  • 19-24 March: Zahid attented the 11th EuCAP conference (European Conference on Antennas and Propagation) together with his Siradel colleagues, and he presented a paper and also welcomed visitors at the Siradel booth. Read his paper here, which title is "Mixing Deterministic and Stochastic Propagation for Assessing MmWave Small-cell Networks", and read his presentation here. Click here to see the pictures.

  • 29 March: Yi just started his secondment at TTI premises, and the objective is to study the characteristics of antennas for mmWave (e.g., high-directional and large-scale) to account for their specific features during the measurement campaign and for subsequent channel modeling. Indeed, he will collaboratively study how the antenna pattern effect the state-of-the-art mmWave channel models, and start working together with Veda about the multi-beam indoor base station mmWave channels. Here is the picture of his arrival.
