The rapid proliferation of wireless cellular systems over the last decade has introduced fundamental changes to ”anytime, anywhere” Mobile Internet access, as well as posed new challenges for the research community. The fifth generation (5G) of mobile broadband standards, such as further evolution of 3GPP LTE-Advanced, target aggressive improvements in all aspects of wireless system design, including system capacity, energy efficiency, and quality of user experience. Promising next generation improvements cover, for example, more advanced antenna technologies on mobile platforms, enhanced network topologies, cross-layer and co-operative transmission techniques.

The Workshop aims to bring together the researchers from academia and the experts from industry to address recent advances in the design, modeling, prototyping, implementation, standardization, and deployment of broadband wireless access networks. It is held during the 6th International Congress on Ultra Modern Telecommunications and Control Systems (ICUMT 2014), St.-Petersburg, Russian Federation on 6-8th October, 2014.

Topics of the 5th RABAN Workshop include, but not limited to, the following:

    Cross-layer optimization concepts
    Energy efficiency and power management
    Co-operative and device-to-device communications
