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.

Dr. Domenico Giustiniano is the head of the Pervasive Wireless Systems group at IMDEA Networks. He is also the leader of the OpenVLC project, an open-source platform for research in visible light communication networks and the co-founder of the non-profit Electrosense association, a crowd-sourcing initiative to collect and analyse spectrum data.

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.
