A5GARD – Achieving 5G service Assurance in the Residential Domain

Project A5GARD brings together expertise on optical networks, 4G and 5G mobile communications, and Wi-Fi connectivity to create breakthroughs in delivering the advanced services promised by 5G through a home infrastructure composed of a mix of technologies. We aim to minimize service providers’ costs and maximize the capacity offered to the user. The deployment of technologies to address the societal challenges in the rural areas, foremost e-health for the elderly, is urgent and much needed.

Expected results and effects

The overall project goal is to facilitate access to high-end services like healthcare to all user devices independently of any geographical situation and to provide 5G services to all the population in an economically viable way. For this, the project will develop novel transmission technologies to extend access networks up to the end-user devices through wired and wireless transport and means to preserve QoS and 5G-service integrity.

Planned approach and implementation

The project brings to the table work from the project partners that is relevant to the project goals. The common goals and values create a unique innovation platform where experts from many areas are brought together, often creating a new whole and improving the contributed work. Knowledge is shared, and new insights and innovations are created. The project also focuses on coordinating standardization efforts to gain critical mass and steer the development to increase competitiveness and social good.
