The significant growth in mobile data traffic and the ever-increasing user’s demand for high-speed, always connected networks continue challenging network providers and lead research towards solutions to enable faster, scalable and more flexible networks. In this paper we present the CROWD approach, a networking framework providing mechanisms to tackle the high densification and heterogeneity of wireless networks. The goal of CROWD is to design protocols and algorithms for very dense and heterogeneous wireless networks, which we call DenseNets. The mechanisms we propose include energy efficiency, MAC enhancements, connectivity management and backhaul configuration to contribute to the next generation of networks considering density as a resource instead of as an obstacle.
