The radio frequency spectrum, the basis for wireless telecommunications, is a finite resource that needs to be managed effectively to satisfy the demands posed by the exponential growth in wireless internet access. IMDEA Networks researchers have developed a novel communications architecture for future ultrafast wireless networks that promises to achieve data rates previously only possible with optical fiber.
We interview one of the members of our Alumni Network, Dr. Roderick Fanou, during his recent visit to IMDEA Networks. Roderick obtained his PhD from IMDEA Networks and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid back in December 2017 and is now a Post Doc at the San Diego SuperComputer Center, CAIDA, University of California San Diego, (USA).
The Mobile World Congress in Barcelona saw some fine conference presentations, impressive booths and many companies announcing ‘magical’ developments. But only one presentation on the conference stage involved a 5G wizard.
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 European innovation action under the H2020 Cibersecurity-PPP funding program is assisting micro enterprises, also known as MEnts, to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which was launched in 2018 to enhance privacy protection for all European citizens. The SMOOTH project, in which IMDEA Networks Institute participates, aims to become the reference platform for MEnts transitioning to GDPR compliance, whilst safeguarding the interests of EU citizenry on data privacy and security.
The lack of transparency in the online advertising ecosystem forces advertisers to rely on the metrics and reports of the different intermediaries involved in the market in order to assess the quality of their campaigns.
An international group of researchers, involving scientists from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and the IMDEA Networks Institute, developed a tool to track and analyze gender inequality through Facebook usage data. Their results, published in an article in the latest issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), show that gender inequality online is related to gender inequality in society at large.
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) and IMDEA Networks researchers present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 recent innovations stemming from several joint European projects aimed to develop 5G networks.
IMDEA Networks Institute announces the launch of the project HyperAdapt. The overall objective of this research initiative is to improve traffic flow in the mobile Internet in response to increasing private and industrial demand.
