The IAS team is leading QCSP, an ANR cooperative research project, started on 1st October 2019 with a duration of 42 months.
The kick-off meeting was held in Lab-STICC premises, Lorient, on 3 October, 2019.
The QCSP project aims to contribute to the evolution of IoT networks by defining, implementing and testing a new coded modulation scheme dedicated to IoT networks. The “big bet” of the project is to work on the emergence of non-binary (NB) codes combined with a cyclic code shift-keying (CCSK) modulation. This new coded modulation scheme, called CCSK-NB-code, can be easily implemented in a cost efficient way at the device side. CCSK-NB-code provides several advantages compared to state of the art waveforms: it offers self-synchronization and self-identification capabilities, and is able to operate at ultra-low signal-to-noise ratios (SNR). The ambition for the industrial partners of this project is to provide an input to the 3GPP standardization committee built from the results of the QCSP project. These results are expected, at least, to initiate discussions around the efficiency of such a solution for IoT and to push CCSK-NB-Code in a future 3GPP release, if the project is able to rally enough support from other industrial partners.
