MAMMOET aims to bring MaMi from an initial promising concept to a highly attractive technology for usage in future broadband mobile networks. In order to achieve its overall goal, the project has a number of important scientific and in - dustrial objectives. These include fundamental, experimental and standardisation elements. The five main objectives are:

  • Objective 1: Elaborate system concepts and approaches
    Provide an understanding of the statistical nature of the relevant channels and traffic and further additional channel measurements and validate already drawn conclusions in a broader range of scenarios. Investigation will focus on exploring which antenna configurations are most attrac - tive and the analysis of possibilities and limitations.

  • Objective 2: Flexible and effective signal processing
    Provide algorithms for distributed and scalable processing and hardware-friendly processing algorithms that allow to trade some of the extra degrees of freedom that MaMi provides to achieve constant envelope signals to transmit from each of the antenna elements.

  • Objective 3: Efficient implementation
    Investigate which hardware components are suitable for building the large array of transmitters and how these can work together. Power-hungry hardware will be made more efficient when the specific properties of MaMi are taken into account.

  • Objective 4: Prove overall innovative concepts and enabling hardware (HW)
    Create an attractive operational technology by bridging the gap between theoretical and conceptual MaMi.

  • Objective 5: Propose MAMMOET solutions to standardisation bodies
    The standardisation focus of MAMMOET will be on 3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project). Our goal is to report the high potential of MaMi and to promote its use in future 3GPP standards.
