ARIADNE’s Guest Editorial Beyond Shannon Communications—A Paradigm Shift to Catalyze 6G is now published

Targeting ultra-reliable and scalable connectivity of extremely high data rates, in the 100 Gbps
to Tbps range, at almost “zero-latency” in 6G systems would require taking advantage of
breakthrough novel technology concepts, including THz wireless links, broadband and
spectrally efficient RF-frontends for a variety of different bands, the employment of intelligent materials (e.g., reconfigurable intelligent surfaces) and the design of machine learning-
based models, protocols, and management techniques. […]   Read more here

Artificial Intelligence Aided D-band Network for 5G Long Term Evolution

The ARIADNE project plans to bring together a novel high frequency advanced radio architecture and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) network processing and management approach into a new type of intelligent communications system Beyond 5G. The new intelligent system approach is necessary because the scale and complexity of the new radio attributes in the new frequency ranges cannot be optimally operated using traditional network management approaches.

Main results achieved so far

Already during first months on its life time, the ARIADNE project consortium defined a reference system model as basis for future investigations. The ARIADNE system concept (see above) includes three general use cases and corresponding scenarios, allowing detailed system modelling and design as well as further planned research activities.

Until now, the ARIADNE project specified its system model as basis for future investigations which will be carried out within the project scope. An analysis of the D-band directional link, including consideration of suitable channel modelling approaches, possible ways forward in performance evaluation, and preliminary studies on appropriate application of machine learning techniques in this context have been concluded. Furthermore, bases for application of Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces and reconfigurable antennas for D-Band have been laid down.


ARIADNE is a three years Research and Innovation action / project under the EU programme Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 871464) started on 1 November 2019.
