Smart Antenna & Radio for Access and Backhaul for Advanced Network noDes (SARABAND)

The SARABAND project aims at taking advantage of the Q-band frequency band (40,5 to 43,5 GHz) in a cost effective way to provide higher performing and integrated network nodes for the wireless backhaul of future mobile radio and last mile access for the digital divide by developing smart antennas and front-end radio modules. The use of millimeter waves, particularly at Q-band where 3GHz bandwidth has been regulated by EU, can bring large capacity with high throughputs, fast deployment, with lightweight and discrete equipment.
