Abstract [en]

An important factor contributing to this uncertainty is that we have very limited knowledge about the future environment in which a fourth generation wireless infrastructure should function. Which of today's systems will still exist when a potential 4G infrastructure is deployed? Which systems and solutions will be considered successful then? What technical bottlenecks will be apparent ten years from now? What market impact will third generation wireless systems have? How will this affect user behavior, and user demands? How much money do prospective users have available to pay for services provided over this infrastructure? This paper presents some of the conclusion of of the Fourth Generation Wireless Infrastructure project (4GW) of the Personal Computing and Communications program (PCC), the major Swedish academic research effort on future communications systems launched in late 1997(1). The vision of the PCC project has been "Personal Multimedia to everyone at today's prices for fixed telephony". In 4GW a scenario-based approach has been used to tackle the issue of identifying reasonable research topics. In the paper we will present this method, and demonstrate how it interfaces with traditional research methods in the fields that the 4GW project incorporates. We will also give an overview of some research results from the project. Finally, we will conclude these results as a vision of what fourth generation wireless infrastructures might become
