The REINDEER project is a 5G Public-Private Partnership project and will receive EU funding as part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. It has begun on January 1, and will run for three-and-a-half years. The project is a joint collaboration of private enterprise and academic leaders within the multi-antenna technology domain, including technical lead KU Leuven in Belgium; and Linköping University and Lund University in Sweden.

The recently initiated European REINDEER project is led by a consortium of multi-antenna technology leaders, and Ericsson is a key driver. It aims to develop and build a new smart connect-compute platform that will be critical to future 6G systems. Ericsson thought leaders and research pioneers are already hard at work to ensure that when 6G comes Ericsson will lead the way in delivering the technology benefits. The company is also keen to work with partners to ensure that technology goals and standards are met.

The project’s name is derived from REsilient INteractive applications through hyper Diversity in Energy-Efficient RadioWeaves technology, and the development of “RadioWeaves” technology will be a key deliverable of the project. This new wireless access infrastructure consists of a fabric of distributed radio, compute and storage. It will advance the ideas of large-scale intelligent surfaces and cell-free wireless access to offer capabilities far beyond future 5G networks. This is expected to offer capacity scalable to quasi-infinite, and perceived zero latency and interaction with a large number of embedded devices.

“As one of the largest investors in R&D in Europe, we remain committed to driving an agenda that puts European innovation at the fore. The REINDEER project delivers an early marker for the development of next generation wireless systems. Together with our partners, we will take significant steps in key 6G technology areas such as Cell-free MIMO and Large Intelligent Surfaces,” said Magnus Frodigh, Vice President and Head of Ericsson Research.
