Liverpool John Moores University

Liverpool John Moores University – one of the UK’s largest universities – has a reputation for providing high quality teaching and learning that’s informed by relevant, credible and world-leading research.

Liverpool John Moores’ computing and mathematical science schools worked on the Radio Resource Management and Optimisation Trial, which aimed to improve the network’s performance and quality of service. The teams developed an effective 5G simulation model to test the network. They designed an efficient load balance routing solution for the networks that prevented congestion and queue overflow, whilst optimising latency, throughput and PDF in the network. LJMU monitored the performance of the backhaul mesh network as new nodes were added, working with CGA Simulation to integrate the simulator into their planning tool.

A research paper entitled “Radio Resource Management Framework for Energy-Efficient Communications in the Internet-of-Things” was published as a peer reviewed article in October 2019.
