What is FRAMES (Future Radio Wideband Multiple Access Systems)?

The aim of FRAMES is to characterize, to create and to assess a wideband and productive multiple access scheme which satisfies the UMTS prerequisites. The focus of the project is the air interface definition, validation and demonstration to meet all significant working conditions and UMTS administrations from narrowband up to wideband information administrations. The project is creating a pair of base station demonstrators and portable terminals to exhibit the fundamental functionality of the FRAMES specification.
