WINNER is an ambitious research project aiming at
identification, development and assessment of key
technologies for IMT-Advanced mobile
WINNER has devised an OFDMA based system
concept with excellent system level performance,
for flexible deployments in a wide variety of operating
The WINNER system provides a significant step
forward compared to the current 3G systems.
Key innovations integrated to the system concept
include flexible spectrum usage and relaying, adaptive advanced antenna
schemes and pilot design, close to optimal link adaptation,
hierarchical control signaling and a highly flexible
multiple access scheme.
The end-to-end performance assessment results
demonstrate that the WINNER concept meets
the IMT-Advanced requirements.
