Magister Solutions took part in the Celtic-Plus EUREKA Cluster SHARING project that was created to stimulate the 4G evolution towards 5G mobile networks by developing innovative technologies designed to improve network performance and user experience. The project has issued 29 contributions to 3GPP standards and over one hundred journal and conference publications.

The project explored new concepts with a special focus on interference management, cost-power efficient small cell deployments, LTE-A WiFi convergence, network-controlled device-to-device communications, meshed relay-assisted networks, Self-Organized Network (SON) features and architecture evolutions for heterogeneous networks. Magister Solutions key innovations were an enhanced architecture design for Generic Minimization of Drive Tests (GMDT) concept and a software solution designed to improve user localization in heterogeneous 3GPP / WiFi networks that was demonstrated in Celtic-Plus Event in Vienna in April 27, 2015 – April 28, 2015

The project was led by Orange (France) in cooperation with Avea Itetisim Hizmetleri (Turkey), Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (France), Ericsson Finland (Finland), Eurecom (France), European Communication Engineering (Finland), IDATE Consulting and Research (France), Magister Solutions (Finland), Mitsubishi Electric R&D Centre Europe (France), Sequans Communications (France), Siradel (France), Supelec (France), Thales Communications and Security (France), TTI Norte (Spain) and the University of Oulu (Finland).
