iCIRRUS Project Partners:

 University of Kent University of Kent, Communications Research Group,
Canterbury, UK
Kent will participate in providing input on the architecture definition, on the use of the fibre network to provide the required functionalities to the radio access, and on the device-to-device and device-to-infrastructure resource management paradigms.
 ADVA ADVA Optical Networking Ltd.,Advanced Technology Team, York, UK In iCIRRUS, ADVA Optical Networking will explore the use of Ethernet based solutions in the fronthaul and midhaul RAN environment, with particular focus on the latency and timing challenges of such a solution.
 Orange Orange S.A., Orange Labs Network team, Lannion, FR Orange will contribute expertise on fixed-mobile convergence and experimental and testbed capabilities on mobile fronthaul. It will contribute to the dissemination, standardisation (e.g. through FSAN, ITU-T and NGMN), exploitation and communication activities.
 TS_ALogo_enovrsticni_RGB Telekom Slovenije,  Research, Development and Service Integration Department, Ljubljana, SI Telekom Slovenije will lead the validation within controlled mobile operator environemnt of selected iCIRRUS developed solutions. It will contribute to architecture definition, refinement and requirements based on use-case scenarios from perspective of telecom and data center hosting operator and constraints based on present state communication networks implementations, focusing on impact of transition to C-RAN and focus on business models and techno economic analysis with LRIC modeling.
 Primetel Primetel, R&D Department, Limassol, CY  Primetel will contribute to architecture definition, techno-economic analysis and support the work on efficient user equipment integration. Primetel will lead the work package on dissemination, standardisation and exploitation.
 Logo Wellness Telecom_nuevo June 2015 Wellness Telecom, Seville, ES  WTELECOM’s main role in ICIRRUS is as a cloud infrastructure and testing service scenario (UCaaS) provider. Furthermore, it is involved in the mobile clone development and the design of the communication and integration architecture. As a company, it is key partner for the definition of the exploitation plan.
 HHI-logo_RGB HHI,Photonic Networks and Systems Department, Berlin, DE  HHI contributes to the new Ethernet-based fronthaul concept for 5G, its evaluation and implementation on a hardware platform. HHI also contributes to the C-RAN architecture definition in WP2, and  leads tasks  on Architecture definition and refinement and on Low-cost high-speed transmission in WP3. The role of UE measurements will be investigated in WP4. HHI is also engaged in implementation work in WP5.
 University of Essex University of Essex, Access Network Laboratory and Network Convergence Laboratory, Colchester, UK  UEssex provides significant contributions to all technical work packages and is leading Work Package WP4, Efficient User Equipment (UE) Integration, with particular focus on new end-user technologies, such as mobile clone in mobile cloud,  device-to-device (D2D) communications, energy-efficiency and spectral resource utilization, offloading and mobile distributed caching (MDC), with provision of 10-Gb/s high-throughput over 60-GHz (mm-wave) at the mobile network edge.


Viavi Solutions, Newbury, UK

Viavi Solutions provides expertise and modelling for SON and optimization in next-generation radio technologies. With increased sophistication, networks are virtualizing and distributing. Interactions between core and access mean boundaries are blurring.  Measuring and understanding these systems becomes more challenging and automated approaches to system optimization drive innovation.
 iaf_logo_claim_RGB IAF GmbH, Future Radio Technology, Braunschweig, DE IAF will be involved in all technical work packages with a focus on architecture definition, feedback on implementation considerations and system integration and testing. IAF will also participate in the dissemination and exploitation work package focussing on the exploitation aspect.
 InterDigital_Europe LOGO InterDigital Europe Ltd., London, UK InterDigital will develop key technologies for the D2D/D2I meshing using 60 GHz technology, mobile computing offloading and front(mid)-haul transport over Ethernet. InterDigital will also contribute towards successful exploitation of iCirrus results into relevant standardization organizations where the company is actively engaged, such as 3GPP, IEEE, IETF and SCF.​
