Forward thinking 5G and beyond research at IMDEA Networks receives major backing

14 January 2019 - 8:43pm -- seltime-editor

The Wireless Networking Group at IMDEA Networks, led by the Institute’s Research Director Dr. Joerg Widmer, has received major financial backing to pursue a new communication paradigm for future very high speed wireless networks. The Madrid-based team has set itself to explore communication in the extremely high frequency part of the radio spectrum, the millimeter wave band (mm-wave) from 30 to 300GHz, to vastly increase data rates of future wireless and mobile networks.

A new research project has been launched with the aim of developing a system for detecting threats to the electromagnetic space.  Led by IMDEA Networks Institute (a networking research organization based in Madrid, Spain), the SOCRATES project has recently been awarded funding by NATO’s Emerging Security Challenges Division – Science for Peace and Security Programme (SPS). The two other collaborating partners on the project are the ElectroSense non-profit association of Switzerland (a crowd-sourcing initiative that collects and analyses spectrum data) and Katholieke Universiteit (KU) Leuven of Belgium. Their work will be concluded by May 2021.

ACM SIGCOMM 2018 met in Budapest on August 20-25. The first visit to Eastern Europe became an unqualified success for the flagship annual conference of the ACM Special Interest Group (SIG) on Data Communication. Encompassing a variety of traditional and newly introduced events, the six-day conference program attracted about 200 more attendees than expected.

Putting underused smart devices to work

There are currently millions of heavily underutilized devices in the World. The storage, networking, sensing and computational power of laptops, smartphones, routers or base stations grows with each new version and product release. Why not put all those extra gigabytes of memory and those powerful processing units to work collaboratively and expand the services available to all of us? 

Demonstrating a 5G future
