WP6: System integration

Leader Participants
BLW TCF, Fraunhofer, SYS, FIB

WP6 will integrate and test the "product", i.e. active antennas and radio front end together with wide band modems. This ensemble constitutes the key product of the network nodes. The final target is to deliver the outdoor parts of the network with the configured networking elements (routers, switch and servers).

At the last year of the project, the equipment developed in WP3, WP4 and WP5 has been assembled and configured on a lab platform to test their performances. The configuration parameters of the platform have been computed through a model which take into account the measures of the SARABAND products: radios, modems, antennas as well as distances and angles between the PoP (Point of Presence) of the SARABAND demonstrator. The transmitted powers on the platform are such that BER is QEF (near E-8) under the constraint of sufficient back-off to limit PAPR and IM3 degradation effects.

Thank to this lab platform, all the information on the platform and "products" networking has been prepared for the real environment testing in Valencia.
