Lower operating costs, enhanced performance, flexibility, resilience and interoperability in 5G networks are all available to mobile operators following the recent completion of a major research project. The 4-year TIGRE5-CM project, coordinated by IMDEA Networks Institute in Madrid, delivers an architecture designed for future mobile networks, based on the SDN (Software Defined Networking) paradigm. TIGRE5-CM simplifies deployment, configuration and management in both the access and core networks, integrating cutting-edge technologies.
IMDEA Networks Institute is proud to announce that one of the members of its alumni network, José Antonio Ruipérez-Valiente, who completed his PhD at University Carlos III of Madrid (UC3M) while he worked as a research assistant at IMDEA Networks, has received three more PhD prizes at the end of 2018, summing up a total of five. Ruipérez is quickly becoming an international rising star in the fields of online learning and educational technologies.
Blockchain is an emerging technology first used for digital currency transactions in Bitcoin. Thanks to emerging blockchain platforms, it is now recognized as a more general-purpose technology - a kind of distributed database and computational platform with great potential as it can be used across many industries.
Arturo Azcorra, IMDEA Networks’ director, vice-president of the 5TONIC Lab and one of the top European experts on the fifth generation of mobile communication networks (5G), discusses in this brief interview various aspects of current networking, with a focus on smart connectivity and the vision of networks as a service.
When we look for information on the internet, buy online or use social networks we often see ads relating to our likes or profile. To what extent are these ads chosen by the web’s algorithms? A group of researchers are trying to answer this question under the name of «MyBubble», a science project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and IMDEA Networks Institute.
Don’t worry, 5TONIC has not branched out into fashion design. However, one test this laboratory of 5G excellence co-founded and hosted by IMDEA Networks is running in its research premises involves a partnership with Madrid’s emergency services team to put smart sensors into a tee-shirt that could then monitor the vital signs of people suffering from known, life-threatening, conditions.
Human beings have started to generate programs and machines whose functioning is not transparent or interpretable. It would be convenient to regulate their development.
