D2D communication pushes the boundaries of future telecom systems

It’s no secret that today’s networks are carrying exponentially more traffic as demand from new devices and their applications increase. The rising traffic being generated by smart devices and mobile broadband services is on course to becoming too much for network resources such as spectrum to handle.

A new research initiative is underway to address this. The joint project sees Ericsson Research, Wireless@KTH and the Automatic Control Lab of the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm collaborating not only to investigate how to better support D2D communication but also the opportunities it presents in 5G networks.
