Discover our objectives

ETHER relies on a multi-layered and unified space-aerial-terrestrial architecture, leveraging the benefits of Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning (AI/ML) for the optimization of the highly complex and heterogeneous “network of networks”.

1.

Provide solutions for a unified and sustainable RAN for the integrated terrestrial and non-terrestrial network.

2.

Provide an AI-based framework for the self-evolving network slicing management and orchestration of the integrated network.

3.

Architect a viable, highly energy- and cost-efficient, flexible integrated terrestrial and non-terrestrial 6G network offering seamless and continuous connectivity.

4.

Demonstrate the effectiveness of ETHER solutions by experimentation activities that target practical applications.

5.

Identify the key benefits that will drive the investment in the integration of non-terrestrial with terrestrial networks.
