Research Fields and Projects of the Department of Mobile Radio Systems
There are plenty of use cases for autonomous flying drones e.g. in delivery, agriculture, security and observation, SAR and many more. In most cases they require a mobile communication service. In this project we investigate the possibility to utilize existing mobile communication networks to provide this service.[More]
The objective of the GreenNets project is to tackle the energy consumption challenge for cellular radio networks and enable the introduction on the market of advanced tools and software platforms to assist operators in enhancing energy efficiency of their current and future network deployments.
iBROW is a Horizon 2020 project to develop a novel, energy-efficient and compact ultra-broadband short-range wireless communication transceiver technology, seamlessly interfaced with optical fibre networks and capable of addressing envisaged future network needs. Predictions indicate that short-range wireless data-rates of tens of Gbps will be required by 2020, and currently available wireless technology cannot support these demands despite significant progress in spectrally efficient techniques. The frequency spectrum currently in use is not expected to be suitable to accommodate these future data-rate requirements, and therefore there is a need to embrace higher frequency bands, namely in the mm-wave and THz bands, above 60 GHz and up to 1 THz.
The SEMAFOUR project will design and develop a unified self-management system, which enables the network operators to holistically manage and operate their complex heterogeneous mobile networks. The ultimate goal is to create a management system that enables an enhanced quality of user experience, improved network performance, improved manageability, and reduced operational costs.
