The “5G Research @ Aalto” consists of multidisciplinary research groups from different departments and schools at Aalto University. It actively collaborates with other universities and companies worldwide, engaged in many ongoing projects such as EU project METIS, EIT ICT M2MRISE, EIT ICT 5GrEEn, EIT Digital ACTIVE-HII, Take-5G, and involved in preparing many upcoming projects. This website introduces some of the activities of the research groups.

Flexible Spectrum Use
Practical Massive MIMO (multiple input, multiple output). MIMO is an antenna technology for wireless communications in which multiple antennas are used at both the transmitter and receiver.
At Aalto University we have the following platforms and tools to help advancing our research work on 5G: Nettitutka.
Traffic-Aware Resource Allocation and Performance Analysis
5G Research in the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis
5G. This is among the first standalonemode NB-IoT, Narrowband Internet-of-Things, implementations in the world.
We introduce new directions for the mobile systems research on mm-wave frequencies making.
Machine to Machine (M2M) communication through mobile systems is emerging fast and new services are introduced constant and Device to Device (D2D) communication is becoming one of the 5G enablers
Communications and Networking Department (COMNET) has summarized research capabilities and future directions for the 5G RAN and Core.
Research activities fall within following categories
In C-RAN, the radio access network (RAN) functionality is moved to the cloud computing infrastructure. Remote radio units (RRU) of different cells are connected to the cloud via a high speed front-haul link, such as a fiber network.
A virtualized mobile LTE network together with the mobile backhaul deployed with the Software Defined Networks (SDN) would be able to provide the required elasticity to match available resources to the traffic demand.
