WINNER is a European research activity to define a new radio interface for around the year 2010. The WINNER project is part of the sixth Framework Programme of the European Union with the strategic Objective “Mobile and Wireless Systems beyond 3G”.
The WINNER project focuses on the development of radio technologies for mobile systems beyond the third generation of mobile communications (3G). The work is closely related to the development of systems beyond IMT-2000, the globally harmonized family of standards for the 3rd generation. These systems beyond IMT-2000 are also known as IMT-Advanced.
The objective of WINNER is to develop a radio interface that can be used in all environments. The target data rates for the different environments are:
