Abstract

Current Internet use is evolving, users are becoming mobile and are expecting data services on the go. This fact presents big challenges and opportunities to operators, which see the increase in data services as a big market still to be exploited. However, current cellular technologies cannot accommodate the demand that will arise when the true Mobile Internet evolves. Addressing these challenges, we present the CARMEN project, the vision of which is to extend operators' infrastructure by providing carrier grade services through a heterogeneous wireless mesh. The CARMEN architecture will provide enough bandwidth to cope with users' expectations at a reduced cost, thereby generating major benefits to operators and users.
