D2.1 “Initial assessment of architectures and hardware resources for a RadioWeaves infrastructure”
D2.1 provides an initial assessment of the RadioWeaves infrastructure, developed in WP2 of REINDEER. Taking the description of RadioWeaves in D1.1 and the use cases and KPIs defined therein, as a starting point, a first version of the building blocks of the infrastructure are presented, together with new terminology. Architecture and topology are introduced together with a quantitative and qualitative analysis of high-level requirements on a RadioWeaves infrastructure, setting the scope for more detailed investigations and design.
D3.1 “Analytical Performance Metrics and Physical-Layer Solutions”
D3.1 develops a framework for physical-layer performance evaluation of RadioWeaves. Specifically, an effective-SINR abstraction model is developed and shown to be accurate and highly efficient in terms of computational complexity. Furthermore, this document evaluates complexity of existing algorithms in terms of computational load and front-haul signaling for different cell-free topologies considered in the literature. It also proposes efficient algorithms for distributed MIMO processing of RadioWeaves with centralized and decentralized approaches.

D1.1 “Use case-driven specifications and technical requirements and initial channel model”
D1.1 provides an inventory of interactive use case specifications, representative deployment scenarios, technical requirements and KPIs for the four focus domains. D1.1 includes the initial channel model based on existing measurements and models. It reports on the particular investigation of the origin of latency in wireless applications.

R&I initiatives on 6G technologies are now starting in leading regions worldwide, with the first products and infrastructures expected for the end of this decade. In January 2021, a first set of 6G projects was launched, worth 60 million EUR under the 5G PPP with the Hexa-X flagship developing a first 6G system concept complemented by 8 projects investigating specific technologies for 6G, putting Europe on a par with our global competitors. In February 2021, the Commission adopted a legislative proposal for the upcoming European partnership on Smart Networks and Services (SNS) towards 6G, the successor of our 5G PPP
