Overview

Building on the successful developments of the first phase, End-to-End Reconfigurability Phase II (E2R II) will demonstrate and validate technologies that enable a true seamless experience based on reconfigurable heterogeneous systems. The project will pursue research into the most promising directions towards removing walls (current technical and regulatory limitations) and building bridges (technical) in order to facilitate the vision of true end-to-end connectivity. E2R is seen by many actors of the wireless industry as a core technology to enable the full potential of Beyond 3G systems. It has the potential to revolutionize wireless communications just as the PC revolutionized computing.

This project includes the key players in the domain of Reconfigurability, Software Defined Radio and Cognitive Radio who have an accurate understanding of the state-of-the-art from various projects and bodies. These previous initiatives have motivated the E2R project, but today’s ambitions, especially after the first phase, are to go further to the end-to-end aspect and reconfigurability support.
